Dial a Ride
Transportation for people over 60
Dial-A-Ride provides individuals age 60 and over with transportation to medical appointments, medical care (Dialysis, physical therapy, counseling), pharmacies, and grocery stores. Wheelchair accessible vans are available. Because Medicaid provides medical transportation, individuals with that coverage are not eligible for CVACL medical transportation (but may qualify for non-Medicaid eligible appointments).
Transportation is provided on a first-come-first-serve basis for appointments Monday thru Friday between the hours of 8:30am and 2:30pm. We encourage a week's notice, but ask for at least three working days, to offer a better chance to fulfill your request. CVACL applies a sliding-scale fee. Income and medical expenses are taken into consideration.
Transportation for people under 60 living with a disability
This program is named after what it provides! The program allows adults 21+ who are living with a disability the “new freedom” of transportation to medical appointments, pharmacies, and grocery stores.
This non-emergency transportation system is operated in conjunction with the Dial-A-Ride program and follows all of the same guidelines.
