Transportation empowers the elderly, blind and disabled to maintain their independence, ensuring greater mobility, health, and quality of life. La Plata County Senior Services Transportation Program is a crucial factor for improving access to community support services for older adults throughout the County.
The Durango Senior Services Transportation Program provides reliable transportation with wheelchair accessible buses and mini vans. Our CDL trained staff serve seniors age 60 + with door to door assisted transportation throughout La Plata County and prioritized rides to the Durango ~ La Plata Senior Center for lunch and activities, and to medical appointments. A special grant allows us to transport those seniors who want to participate in Watch Your Step, an exercise class, free of charge. Other shopping may be scheduled contingent upon availability. Medicaid clients may use our services for medical transportation with an approval from Medicaid. Rides need to be pre-arranged with our transportation department at least 24 hours in advance and are subject to availability.
