Fulton County Seal
Transportation
Overview
Fulton County seniors sometimes need help getting to medical appointments. They may also need a ride to the Senior Center in their town or to the grocery store. Below is information on how the Senior Center is able to help with these needs.

Medical Escort Service
This program is primarily a one-on-one service provided for those requiring transportation to appointments for essential health needs such as doctor and dentist appointments, chemo or radiation therapies, eye surgeries, etc. We suggest a donation to offset the cost of the transportation. A minimum notice of 48 business hours is needed to fill a request and requests are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Drivers for the escort service are primarily volunteers and cannot accept any responsibility for clients other than for transportation. If you are a home-bound Fulton County senior and need help getting to a health-related appointment, contact us by calling (419) 337-9299.

For other transportation inquiries, call (419) 337-9299.
