Transportion Disadvantaged Program (TD)
This program is for those who because of physical or mental disability, income status or age (either young or old) are unable to transport themselves or to purchase transportation; or for children who are disabled or at-risk. As a result, they are dependent upon others to obtain access to health care, employment, education, shopping, social activities or other life sustaining activities. TD service is available anywhere within Lee, Hendry and Glades counties. TD transportation reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance.
To become eligible to receive TD service, you must fill out an application and provide proof of your pre-tax household income. There is a small co-pay – currently $2.00 per trip each one-way trip. This must be paid in cash with exact change since our drivers do not make change. Personal Care Attendants and children under the age of eighteen are not required to pay.
