The Amarillo Area Agency on Aging will be providing free curb to curb transportation service starting July 1st.
Anyone who is 60 years old or older can use the free transportation through the City’s transportation department
The need for a service like this is significant because of the high number of people who are registered to use the Americans with Disabilities ACT service in our area.
The 15-passenger vehicles are brand new and can accommodate up to three-wheel chairs at a time.
The service provides door-to-door assistance if requested, plus they will take you to any location within the city limits during hours of operation.
If you currently do not have eligibility with the Area Agency on Aging program, the transit department will screen you to see if you meet the requirements.
You have to schedule your trip at least 24 hours before your ride.
