TRANSPORTATION FUNDED WHOLLY OR IN PART BY DUTCHESS COUNTY OFFICE FOR THE AGING

A number of transportation services are available to serve disabled and older individuals who can no longer drive a car. Transportation to medical appointments, both in and out of the county, is often provided by volunteers, using their own cars or those of the agencies whose programs they represent. Volunteer drivers do not run on regular schedules, but as needed and when available.

Several community organizations provide transportation services for residents. Some specific eligibility requirements may exist.

OTHER TRANSPORTATION SERVICES

There is a municipal bus system serving the City of Poughkeepsie and adjacent areas, and a county-wide bus system providing (primarily) commuter and shopper transportation.

Treatment and residential programs for the mentally ill, developmentally disabled, alcohol and drug abusers, and other special populations often furnish transportation to their own clients. Programs employing senior or disabled volunteers often provide them with transportation.

Appropriate transportation to medically-necessary appointments is provided at no charge for Medicaid clients. Doctor’s statements are usually required for taxi or ambulette, and arrangements must be made at least three days in advance. When last minute trips to the doctor are necessary, the doctor must fax pertinent information to the Medical Transportation unit.

Dial-A-Ride is managed by the Dutchess County Division of Public Transit Bus System and is available in the Towns of Amenia, Dover, East Fishkill, Fishkill, Hyde Park, North East, Pine Plains, Poughkeepsie, Stanford, Wappinger, or Washington, or the City of Poughkeepsie. Call 845-473-8424 for information.
