There are many transportation providers throughout Carroll County. Providers include senior centers, volunteer driving groups, taxi services, ambulance services, and more. The three providers listed below are major partners with the Regional Coordinating Council and our 5310 Grant program focused on enhanced mobility of seniors and individuals with disabilities. These providers have been important members of the Coordinating Council for many years and work together to increase transit options and access throughout the county.

The Carroll County Retired & Senior Volunteer Program provides a transportation service focusing on long distance rides for ambulatory seniors, veterans and adults with disabilities. CCRSVP places a high priority on transportation to support "Aging in Place" as defined by the Center for Disease Control - “the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level."

The Tri-County Community Action Program operates public transportation services in Coos, Carroll and Grafton Counties. They provide disabled, low income, and general public transportation through a number of services. These services include flex routes, long-distance medical trips, and door to door pickups.

 

 

The Gibson Center for Senior Services operates two late model bus-bodied vans, one with a lift. At least one van is on the road from 7:30 AM to around 2:00 PM to bring folks to the Center, to medical appointments, pharmacies and shopping. The Gibson Center also runs number of programs and classes to support an active lifestyle in addition to these transportation services.
