Trained volunteers provide rides for those 60 and over in Cook County and to Duluth when Arrowhead Transit or family and friends aren’t an option. 

Includes rides for:

  • Medical, personal, and wellness appointments in Cook County
  • Medical and eye appointments in Duluth

Clients are asked to share in the cost of their rides by making a suggested donation determined from a  sliding fee scale based on monthly income. This cost share ranges from .08 cents to .55 cents per mile.   For example, the cost share for a 200-mile round trip to Duluth may be between $16.00 and  $110.00 depending on client income. The suggested cost share for short in-town rides is $1.00 per ride, regardless of income. 

Senior Rides clients receive a letter at the end of the month calculating their cost share, but please know that Care Partners is pleased to provide these services whether or not a contribution is made.  We trust that our clients value these services, and will contribute as they are able, when they are able.

Call 218-387-3788 or email seniorrides@boreal.org for more information.
