The Elizabeth West Transportation program of Eastern Area Agency on Aging was made possible through a generous endowment from Elizabeth West. Thanks to the endowment, EAAA was able to purchase a handicap accessible passenger van and add transportation to their wide array of services.

The purpose of the program is to provide transportation for individuals to and from medical appointments. This service is available to individuals 50 years or older and not eligible for other transportation services offered, such as Medicare and Medicaid. Transportation in the van is for the greater Bangor area. Transportation fees are based on the individuals income and assets. Mileage reimbursement is an option (if eligible) for those outside of the greater Bangor area.

This program is partially supported by funds from Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems (EMHS).
