How it works: Please complete a CICOA Transportation Application  prior to scheduling your first trip and return to Tiffany Carson at CICOA.

Essential Needs Transportation is available Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. and focuses primarily on residents of Center Township (outlying townships considered on case-by-case basis). If you are looking for transportation assistance and live outside Center Township, CICOA can refer you to other senior transportation services.

There is no charge for this service, however a suggested contribution of $5.00 per trip helps maintain this program.

Volunteers Drivers Needed! 

CICOA is always in need of volunteer drivers for the Essential Needs Transportation program. Volunteers are reimbursed for mileage and provided secondary auto insurance for using their own vehicles.
