Council on Aging (COA) Van - Transportation

Transportation VanAlthough the Senior Center remains closed at this time, transportation will be provided for medical appointments and shopping on Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 2:30 pm. Our van will be limited to 3 riders at a time with social distancing. Please call to book your ride well in advance, spaces will fill up fast. Several new protocols are required for staff and riders to minimize the transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

New Requirements

The new requirements include the following:

  • Drivers will follow proper hand hygiene and wear masks. Drivers will ensure riders maintain social distancing and/or assign seating; this may result in fewer passengers per vehicle. For your safety and the safety of the others, riders must wear a mask except for the reasons specified in the Governor's order there will be no eating or drinking in the vehicles there may be screening ahead of and at the time of service new vehicle-cleaning protocols, which may impact scheduling.
  • Before transportation services resumed, our staff received training on all the changes and protocols. One of our staff members may also review requirements with you over the phone prior to scheduling any transportation service.
