A Variety of Options

“Transportation Options for Older Adults and People with Disabilities” is a brochure created by the National Aging and Disability Transportation Center. It shares a variety of transportation options to consider, including:

  • Demand Response (Dial-a-Ride): transports multiple passengers picked up at different entry points and are dropped off at separate destinations.
  • Medicaid Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT)
  • Public Transit
  • Paratransit
  • Shared Ride Services
  • Taxi Services
  • Transportation Voucher Programs
  • Travel Training
  • Volunteer Transportation Programs

The ’Getting a Ride’ Checklist

In addition, the brochure comes with a checklist to use when arranging transportation for yourself. The printable sheet reminds you to ask about service area, scheduling, eligibility for assistance, cost, and accommodations.

Be prepared so you can be an independent traveler.
