any Hamilton County resident fifty years of age or older.

All of our vans are wheelchair accessible.  To schedule transportation, please call the PLE Transportation Coordinator at 317-815-7000 (ext. 205).  As the service is in great demand, it’s best to call at least one week ahead.  We will do our best to accommodate your request.  A brief individual assessment must be completed (by phone) before transportation is scheduled for the first time.
