MAC’s purpose is to provide transportation for elderly and disabled persons in Fountain and Warren counties for:
- Medical Appointments
- Social Service Agencies
- Legal/Court Appointments
- Covington and Warren Senior Centers (provided each weekday)
- Shopping and Errands (One Day per week is specified for shopping and errands in each town.)
We operate 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on weekdays. Riders should call for pick-up time as soon as they book an appointment. One to two weeks notice is preferred: one or two days accepted; however, last minute appointments are often available, due to cancellations. Eligible riders include anyone:
- Age 60 and older
- Handicapped persons 55 and older
- Medicaid recipients that have no transportation to medical appointments.
- Transport younger handicapped persons
We work closely with the three area nursing homes to transport handicapped residents to local medical clinics and clinics in Lafayette, Crawfordsville, Terre Haute, Danville, IL., and Champaign. We have wheelchair accessible vans as well as minivans. All drivers hold public passenger licenses and are trained in passenger assistance techniques, CPR, defensive driving, first aid and emergency evacuation.
MAC Van is a demand-response transportation program which means each day is scheduled according to the number of requests, time and location of appointments.
Fundraising is crucial to our operation. We urge our clients to make a donation for their transportation, no matter how small. Each spring we sponsor a direct mail fund raiser, “Provide a Ride”, in which you can donate and sponsor a medical run for an area resident.
The MAC Van centralized office is located at:
1325 2nd Street, Covington, IN 47932
Office hours are from 8:30 am -5:00 pm weekdays.
