The Posey County Council on Aging



Come Ride with Us!

Our service schedule runs Monday thru Friday. If medical conditions warrant, additional
days and times are added. The trip destinations include: dialysis, treatment facilities,
medical, dental and eye doctor appointments; as well as hospital, cancer treatment
centers, and same day surgery centers. In addition, we transfer elderly and handi-
capped for our nutrition program, shopping, and other general errands.

Take a ride in the versatile vehicle that has been added to our fleet of vans!
This van will hold three wheelchairs or any combination totaling nine
passengers! INDOT has been very generous - along with grant money
from the Posey County Community Foundation!

The newest addition to our fleet is a 2019 Dodge
which was obtained by an INDOT Grant!
It is a low floor, mini van with wheel chair access.
This makes the 10th vehicle that is available to
transport Posey County residents!
