Ensuring your mobility and independence.

Working in collaboration with a number of community transportation providers in Bennington and Rutland counties, SVCOA also helps to ensure that older Vermonters are able to get where they need to go, when they need to get there. Whether for regular, daily errands, important appointments, or to visit family and friends, SVCOA believes mobility, through easily-accessible public transportation, is critical to older Vermonters maintaining their independence and quality of life. As a result, SVCOA provides transportation funding, as well as ride coordination, to eligible older Vermonters and younger individuals with disabilities.

Qualifying categories for SVCOA-funded transportation needs include:

  • Non-Medicaid critical care
  • Non-Medicaid medical needs
  • Accessing congregate meals
  • Accessing Adult Day Services
  • Essential shopping needs
  • Vocational commitments
  • Social or personal needs
