hello ...........I'm looking for information on a service started by a aarp member a few years back.......the service was a transportation service for the elderly .............a person not able to drive any more would turn in his or her car to this service in exchange for points that would count toward using this service without pay.......or folks could join and pay by the month and have a service to come and pick them up etc........the article was in a former issue of aarp maybe within the last 4 years.......I believe the woman who started this was also getting a grant or some type of monies from the gov. to help with .........I would appriciate all or any iinformation you may have , including the issue date, any websites listed and or the womans name.......the the name of the service......thanks
I think smartsilvers has a good idea. Here in northern Colorado, the county Office on Aging has all sorts of resources. It also serves a one-stop shop to offer information about other agencies in the area.
Here we have several transportation options besides city bus and taxi. There is an all volunteer group called Saints that provide rides as long as they are arranged in advance. This service is free but donations for gas costs are encouraged for those who can afford it. We also have a handicap van for people in wheelchairs. That too requires advanced arrangement. This is operated by the regional bus company. Rides cost $2.50 within town.
We are lucky enough to have kind neighbors who have offered rides numerous times when my husband was still able to get around without a powerchair.
Good luck to you!
