Are you or do you have a friend or loved one who is over the age of 70 or maybe have a temporary or permanent disability? If so, you are eligible for free rides from Island Connections!

Island Connections provides rides to seniors 70 and up, with no questions asked as well as to those of any age with temporary and permanent disabilities.

If you are under the age of 70 and are temporarily restricted or temporarily disabled to drive due to a medical reason determined by a physician you just need to provide a doctor's note to Island Connections. If you are permanently disabled under the age of 70, you just need to provide a benefits statement from the Social Security Administration to Island Connections.
