‘Health Rides’ Helping Benzie Area Seniors Get To Healthcare

Public transportation in Benzie County is making it easier for senior citizens to get healthcare.

Benzie Bus and Benzie Senior Resources are expanding their partnership to provide non-emergency medical transportation for area seniors.

It’s called Health Rides, and they’ll offer rides direct from home to the doctor’s office or healthcare treatment centers.

Rides are $15 one-way, but some financial assistance is available.

The service is expected to start after the new year.

In the meantime, they’ll be conducting a survey and taking input on how best to meet transportation needs for patients.
