Medical Transportation Program – 55+ RSVP
55+ Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) has a medical transportation
program that provides rides to individuals 55+ and disabled adults who have no other means of getting to medical appointments. Individuals must be able to safely transfer themselves in and out of a vehicle and must complete an enrollment form for services. Service is free to Johnson County residences and facilitated by the United Way of Johnson & Washington Counties. All transportation is provided by Volunteers using their own vehicles for transportation. Volunteer Drivers have a good driving record, a valid driver’s license, and verified auto insurance. One week advanced notice of appointments is helpful to coordinate volunteers as rides are based on volunteer availability.
