Having a Disability

If you have a disability, there may be some other options for transportation in addition to the ones we’ve already shared. Always keep in mind that the options available to everyone will hopefully be accessible for you too!

Many states have a special transportation service that picks you up at your home and takes you to work or places in your community. The challenging part is that you have to make your plans way ahead of time! You have to fill out paperwork that documents your disability in order to qualify for this specialized service. The costs of this service is pretty reasonable. To find out more about specialized transportation in your community, you can check with:

  • Centers for Independent Living (CILs): CILs can work with you to help you learn about transportation options – and it’s free!
  • City Hall: Often, the main offices of your city will know about these resources in your community.
  • Talk to your friends or older adults with disabilities — people who have “been there, done that.” They can share resources with you!
