HCEOC Transportation Departments primary goal is to provide essential transportation services to Hawaii Island’s elderly, low-come, disabled citizens. Those who qualify for this service will be able to access medical facilities, rehabilitation centers, nutrition sites, shopping areas, banks, post offices, government buildings and places of employment to fulfill their need to be contributing members of our society.
Services are provided Monday through Friday, island wide. Handi-lift vehicles are available for those confined to wheelchairs. Services are subject to an application and qualification process, subject to approval. Funding for these services are made available by County of Hawaii, State of Hawaii, and Federal sources, including the Older Americans Act.
Requests for transportation arrangements to medical appointments and treatment locations may be scheduled by individual clients by calling the Transportation Division in East Hawaii at at (808)961-2681, ext 503 or (808)345-8530, or in West Hawaii at (808) 322-3429.
