The MBSCC Transportation Services Program aims to prevent seniors who are unable to travel or access public transportation from becoming socially isolated and/or declining physically by assisting them in getting to and from places throughout their communities. The program covers community districts 1 through 8 and offers two main types of trips:
Medical trips: Only allowed for non-Medicaid clients and include travel to and from any and all medical appointments or facilities. The trips are typically single-service trips, although several clients can be transported to a variety of locations within an area, if the origination and destination are within a reasonable distance. Social: Social trips are allowed for all eligible clients, regardless of Medicaid status.
Social trips: Can be single-service or group, and may be reserved by an organization or a trip coordinator. There is a limited to a sixty mile radius.
