Transportation

The MARC Department of Aging and Adult Services currently offers the following:

  • Reserved Transportation. Reserved transportation may be available to all seniors aged 60 years and over. Limited reserved transportation may be available to those 18-59 years of age with a disability. MARC’s reserved transportation is provided through contracted agencies with paid drivers. The door-to-door service must be reserved at least 24 hours in advance and is primarily to provide trips for medical appointments. Please be aware that the demand for this service far outpaces the number of trips available each day and we cannot guarantee a ride will be available every time you need one.
  • Wheelchair Transportation. Wheelchair transportation may be available to all seniors aged 60 years and over, who are using a wheelchair due to mobility limitations. Limited wheelchair transportation may be available to those 18-59 years of age, with a disability requiring the use of a wheelchair. The wheelchair transportation is provided through contracted agencies with paid drivers, using lift- or ramp-equipped vans. The door-to-door service must be reserved at least 24 hours in advance and will primarily be available to provide trips for medical appointments. As with the reserved transportation, the demand for this service far outpaces the number of trips available each day and we cannot guarantee that a ride will be available every time you need one.
Please call our Information and Assistance line at 816-421-4980 to determine which agency MARC contracts with in your area.

There is no predetermined fee scale for transportation services provided through the MARC Department of Aging Services. Voluntary contributions are accepted to help defray the cost of services received.
