A volunteer driver will drive Newcap's van and will transport riders to non-emergency medical appointments. If there are openings and drivers available, we will transport riders to other destinations. Riders will be charged a $5.00 trip fee (for trips under 80 miles round trip- $8.00 for longer trips) plus pay $0.35 per mile. Payment will be due before the trip starts. Medical trips will be a priority. This programs target population is: Elderly, Disabled, and Low income riders. Others will be serviced as availability allows (fee’s will be slightly higher).
This program is targeting elderly, disabled and low income residents for services. Household income must be at or less 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Elderly is 60 years or older- disabled receiving SSDI, or disabled per a doctor.
Potential riders will need to contact the Mobility Manager, complete a short questionnaire (over the phone). Any rides will need to be scheduled no less then 2 business days before transport.
