Transportation is essential for access to medical care, food, recreation, social services and other goods and services that allow individuals to remain independent. Clackamas County Social Services operates several transportation programs, and, through a partnership called the Clackamas County Transportation Consortium, provides coordination and funding for transportation needs at the ten senior and community centers operating in Clackamas County.
Transportation Reaching People
The Transportation Reaching People (TRP) Program serves Clackamas County seniors and people with disabilities who need transportation to medical appointments, personal business, and shopping. Door to door transportation is provided by volunteer drivers using their private auto. TRP staff drive wheelchair accessible vans. The goal of the program is to assist individuals by promoting independent living and preventing unnecessary institutionalization.
The Ride Together program empowers riders to recruit their own volunteer drivers (i.e. family, neighbors, and friends) and, as an incentive, the drivers are reimbursed for their mileage costs. This program allows customers to schedule their rides directly with their drivers at times that work for both parties.
The Catch-A-Ride (CAR) Program serves Clackamas County residents referred by partner agencies who need transportation to employment related services, school, and workshops. The goal of the program is to assist individuals by promoting self-sufficiency and reduce the need for public assistance.
Travel Trainer Program
The Travel Trainer (TT) Program teaches Clackamas County residents on how to use public transportation. The main goal of the program is to empower residents to use public transit to gain and retain their employment.
Transportation hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except for holidays.
