The Truro Council on Aging is pleased to provide van transportation services to Truro residents who are at least 60 years old or for adults with disabilities to destinations within Barnstable County. Through the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority, a wheelchair accessible van is available to people with physical limitations, who use wheelchairs and/or other mobility aides.
Transportation services are available Monday through Friday for medical appointments as well as for other daily living needs such as grocery shopping, errands, trips to the pharmacy and to attend activities held at the COA. Medical appointments do take priority. Appointment times should be scheduled within the normal business day of the COA, taking into consideration travel time.
A minimum of two business days (48 hours) is needed for all ride requests. The following information must be available when calling for a transportation reservation: name of rider; phone and address, physician’s name, phone and address or the address of an appointment if other than medical; date/ time of the appointment and approximate length of the appointment. Please note that the starting pick up point and return destination must be within the town of Truro.
Fees are not required for this service, but voluntary donations are appreciated to help defray the vehicle costs to the town.
If you would like more information about transportation services or would like to schedule a ride, please call Shawn Grunwald, Transportation Coordinator at 508-487-2462 Ext. 320.
