Transportation

Transportation is the road to access: access to your social network, to your community, to meeting your basic needs and to essential services like medical care. For individuals who do not drive, public transportation provides a partial but not wholly adequate solution to the challenge of getting around to required destinations at the right time. Age and disability can compound the inadequacy of public transportation and render individuals vulnerable to unmet need and isolation.

Synod provides door-to-door shuttle service and public transportation assistance to all clients whose independence and community life require transportation support service. Synod operates a 29-vehicle fleet that traveled over 329,000 miles in 2011, helping people reach their destinations including work, grocery stores, medical appointments, family visits, community events and more.
