Resource Corner – Need a Ride?

by | Aug 31, 2021 | Blog

Are you looking for ways to get to the places you want to go? Are you no longer driving and have difficulty finding transportation? We have resources and guides designed to provide transportation advice and options for people with physical limitations, older adults, and their families. There are a variety of transportation services available in Brown County and surrounding areas. It’s easy to become overwhelmed when trying to sort out all of the options.

Where should you begin?

First – Look at Your Situation
• Are you unable to drive a car due to a loss of vision or physical mobility?
• Is it difficult to get to the grocery store or doctor’s office?
• Do you have concerns about an aging parent’s ability to drive safely?

Second – Create a Plan
Plan around your physical needs, types, frequency of trips, scheduling, convenience, and cost. You may want to consider using several different types of transportation for other trips. For example, you may be able to use Medical Assistance to pay for van service to the doctor’s office and Paratransit for trips to the store. Once you have considered all your needs, (physical, types of trips, scheduling, and cost) you’ll see that knowing about and using more than one transportation option will give you the most freedom of movement.
Check out the Resource Library on our website,

There, you’ll find Transportation Options – Getting You Where You Want to Go. This booklet has a list of services with descriptions to help you plan where you want to go and how to get there.

For more information on local providers and costs, on our Resource Library page, click “Transportation” and then select the Transportation List & Resources. This is a list of transportation options and resources within Brown County. The resources are provided in partnership with Green Bay Metro, ADRC of Brown County, and the Brown County Planning Department.
