- Program Overview: The New Freedom Transportation Program allows persons with disabilities and older adults to access transportation services for medical, shopping, and recreational trips. They utilize a call center, which is staffed by transportation specialists who coordinate travel for clients. Services are provided by either volunteer drivers who are reimbursed for their miles or a voucher program that reimburses clients who provide their own drivers. The New Freedom Transportation Program covers an 18-county area and requires coordination across numerous agencies and organizations in the region.
