You call ahead of time to book a pickup (at your home or facility) and there is a window of time because they are driving lots of people so you sometimes have to be ready and wait for a while but they do take you from A to B like your MRI appointments. We have a resident who attends a day program who gets picked up and dropped off weekdays.
I'm looking for something similar here.

I can take the bus to work, the walking part of that isn't too far yet ... although it may become too far if the diagnosis results in a "NO walking" order.

Plus I've discovered that there appears to be 3 community transport options for getting to appointments and other things. However, the first criteria is that a person would have to be 65 years old ... or disabled.

OK, I might qualify under the "or disabled" but I think I would need to be able to prove it, and a bad limp isn't enough. It would have to be a medical certificate.
