Free Transportation for Homewood Seniors (Age 60+)

This program offers FREE transportation to seniors 60 and older who live inside Homewood City limits. Call Homewood Senior Center at 332-6500 to schedule pick-up or to register for this wonderful service. The limit of passengers we can accommodate daily will depend on the distance of the destinations and locations of those requesting service. We have only one van operating Monday through Friday for this service. Obviously, on a day when those requesting service live on opposite sides of the city and their destinations are in different locations, the driver spends more time en route. Therefore, in an effort to serve the most people, we may ask you be ready unusually early. On other occasions we simply may not be able to accommodate all requests.

We recommend that you schedule your pick-up a week in advance. Prior to your first ride on the van, we will ask you to supply emergency contact information. The following additional information is required for each request:

  • Your name, address, and phone number.
  • Date & time you need transportation.
  • Destination*
  • Any physical assistance needs (load wheelchair, use step stool for boarding)
  • For Medical appointments. be sure to include:

  • Doctor's or Clinic's Name, Address, and Doctor's Phone

  • *Service is Monday through Friday. Because the same van is also used for seniors' special recreational trips, we may occasionally modify the daily transportation schedule. We do have a wheelchair van. However, our staff are not clinically trained. Therefore, we may not be able to accommodate individuals who need physical lift assistance to board the vehicle.

    Staff are not available to accompany seniors to appointments.

    The 9:00am-2:00pm daily schedule* is:

    • Monday- Errands (non-grocery) within Homewood (ex: post office bank, mall, salon)
    • Tuesday- Medical Appointments
    • Wednesday- Medical Appointments
    • Thursday- Piggly Wiggly
    • Friday- Publix or Aldi
