The Elizabeth West Transportation program is made possible through a generous endowment from Elizabeth West. Thanks to the endowment, Eastern Area Agency on Aging purchased a handicap accessible passenger van and added 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 who are not eligible for other transportation services offered, such as Medicare and Medicaid transportation programs. The van transports in the greater Bangor area and fees are based on the individual’s 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).
