Transportation Options for Seniors

Transportation is a service that is important for seniors and disabled adults, especially those who do not drive.  Although it is a needed service, it is one with limited resources that a no-cost or low-cost.

The ADRC Helpline, part of the Area Agency on Aging of Pasco-Pinellas, Inc., provides information on transportation resources and options, including government funded programs, non-profit agencies, and for-profit businesses.  The Helpline also can provide information on businesses who are licensed to provide homemaker, companion, or home health and their staff can provide transportation as well for a fee.

For more assistance, please call the Helpline at 1-800-963-5337.  Calling from outside the area: 727-217-8111.  Or, if you prefer, search for transportation resources that are part of the Helpline’s database here.

 

The Caregiver section of this website offers a page “Decisions About Driving”to help caregivers evaluate and discuss a person’s ability to continue driving.
