Medical Transportation Using Multiple Programs

With a combination of Title 3 funding and private donations SeniorCare operates a volunteer driver program for medical transportation, using AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP volunteers. They also set out to become knowledgeable about other transportation options in the region, and to share that information with their riders.

Long-Distance Medical Transportation

To promote access for Cape Cod residents to specialty medical appointments in Boston, the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority (CCRTA) has run a Boston Hospital shuttle since 2001. The shuttle starts on the Outer Cape and picks passengers up at seven stops in different Cape towns, and then drives into Boston and drops passengers off at their appointments.

We’d love to hear from you!
