Transportation for Older Adults and Adults with Disabilities
Transportation is available to Missourians age 60 or older and adults with disabilities age 18-59 years of age through the local area agencies on aging (AAAs). The AAAs provide different forms of transportation depending on what is available in their local areas. Transportation options can include:
- Bus passes or fees for public transportation
- Vans provided by the AAAs or contractors to transport individuals to the local senior centers
- Non-emergency medical transportation
- Consumer-directed transportation (reimbursement for paying a family member or friend to drive you)
- Volunteer driver programs
- On-demand transportation (Uber, Lyft)
