The Specialized Transportation Program provides curb-to-curb transportation services for people who are age 55 and over, or people with a disability. Our vans are handicapped-accessible.

Specialized Transportation provides transportation to medical appointments, personal appointments, banking or shopping, visits with family or friends, or to run errands in town. Participants who need assistance are required to have another person escort them to their appointment, and that person may ride free of charge.

Rides are available Monday through Friday. Please call to schedule your transportation as soon as possible to assure availability.

To Duluth – areas of Essentia Health, Miller Dwan, St. Lukes:  $9.00 each way.
