Transportation Services for Senior Citizens
The Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging runs a senior help line. This organization does assist families in understanding medical benefits, and can assist with questions about payments. Transportation when necessary for medical appointments and care may be billable, and therefore may not cost your family, if the correct service is identified.
Call Senior LinkAge Line® at
M-F 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
If your question is more directly related to the service itself, here is a link to an organization that provides transportation services for seniors in Minnesota:
