Assisted Living Residents

Prairie Hills Transitwants to provide continued reliable, affordable and safe transportation for those who are unable to drive, or who have mobility challenges. Our lift-equipped vehicles and trained drivers allow for those riders to reach their destination.
Prairie Hills Transit will pick up at the best location outside the facility and drop off at the most convenient location outside the destination. Drivers do assist riders with boarding and departure. With a contract in place for additional services, the resident rides may be door-to-door or door-through-door. Please ask your facility if there is a contract with Prairie Hills Transit.
An attendant from your facility or a family member may ride freefor medical trips. It is important when arranging any pickups that you let Prairie Hills Transit dispatch know an attendant will be riding with the resident to ensure availability of seats for the trip.
