TRANSPORTATION

Transportation has been and continues to be the number one need of older people in DeKalb County. The Council on Aging provides daily scheduled trips to eight nutrition centers. Other services provided are shopping, medical and pharmacy trips, and payment of bills.

Social and recreational trips are enjoyed also. Excursions to local points of interest provide educational experiences as well as social outings.

Transportation is funded through the Section 18 Rural Public Transportation Program. Therefore, many seniors can take advantage of the other services provided to the general public such as demand/response trips, wheelchair accessibility, and a more comprehensive public transportation system.
