Meeting Transportation Needs

Posted: Updated:

The Area Agency on Aging 3 is forced to turn people away from a popular program.

The agency is facing a supply versus demand problem when it comes to meeting the transportation needs for residents of west central Ohio. The agency runs the 'Find a Ride' program for seniors and the disabled who have no other community transportation options. However the need is greatly outpacing funding.

The find a ride program has 500 registered users. Last year, 10 thousand rides were provided by the program. The agency is seeking donations to keep the program running.
