Accessing Transportation for Seniors

Seniors driving is a way a way of independence. Many Seniors over the age of 65 don’t drive according to the AARP. For citizens in the KIPDA region they have the option of free transportation provided to those that are 60 years of age or older. These rides are provided free of charge. Folks that are eligible can call the Louisville Wheels Transportation that provides services in that county or call KIPDA at (502) 266-5571 for more details. The KIPDA transportation program provides rides only to Non-emergency medical appointments.

All application can be completed over the phone. As these rides are free of change at times the rides can be limited. To assist with this issue, rides can also access the KIPDA Voucher Transportation program provided by KIPDA. This voucher program allows for those seniors who have access to someone who can provide a ride for them in privately owned vehicle to and from doctor’s appointments, and any other medical appointments. The voucher ride system is not intended to replace natural support already being provided.
