Volunteer Medical Transportation:  This program provides door to door transportation to medical appointments only for persons who are 60 and older.  The program is designed for those individuals who need minimal assistance but are no longer able to drive to medical appointments within or outside of Pierce County.  Volunteer drivers use their own vehicles to take individuals to medical appointments. Drivers are reimbursed by the ADRC for mileage accrued during the transport.  Individuals will be asked to donate what they are able to afford to help defray those reimbursement costs.

Basic hours of operation are Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Participants must call 715-273-6780 or 1-877-273-0804 to schedule rides with as much notice as possible.

Specialized Van Transportation:  The purpose of the Specialized Van Transportation program is to provide medical transportation for those who require a wheelchair and live in their own home or apartment. Passengers must be 60 and older or have a disability. This specialized transportation is for medical appointments only.

Requests for service are made by contacting the ADRC at 715-273-6780. The receptionist will discuss your transportation needs and the best options to meet those needs.  Van service options vary by community.  Requests for van service should be made 24-48 hours in advance if possible.  Individuals will be asked to donate what they are able to afford to help defray costs.

River Falls Ride Share Taxi:  The ADRC contracts with the Shared Ride Taxi to provide subsidized transportation within the city of River Falls.  To schedule a ride call the River Falls Ride Share Taxi at 715-425-0900.

Shopping Van Service:  The ADRC Shopping Van Service can take seniors and adults with disabilities to local business for shopping or errands such as going to the grocery store, the bank, the post office or for just general shopping.  Reservations are required and space is limited!  Call the ADRC at 715-273-6780 to sign up for shopping trips.  Please sign up 24 hours in advance!
