Greene County Department of Human Services provides Homebound Medical Transportation, courtesy of a volunteer driver. This service is available to Greene County residents age 60 or older who do not have any other available options for transportation to medical appointments located in Greene County, as well as the neighboring counties of Albany, Columbia, Delaware, Schoharie and Ulster.
Appointments must be scheduled for Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. through 2:00 p.m.
We require clients to call our office at least two weeks prior to the appointment so that we can schedule the transportation with a volunteer driver.
During inclement weather or other emergencies, it may be necessary for us to close our senior service centers because of hazardous driving conditions. When we need to close the centers, medical transportation services can be affected. Drivers & clients are asked to call the office for information under these circumstances.
We are unable to transport clients covered by Medicaid. If covered by Medicaid & in need of transportation to a medical appointment, are asked to call 855-360-3545.
All medical transportation for clients will be restricted to four (4) times a month.
