Shopping Transportation

Shopping Transportation – Overview:
For many residents in Osceola County, getting to the grocery store or supermarket is not easy. The Osceola Council On Aging offers its shopping transportation services to homebound disabled and/or senior citizens who otherwise do not have a means to travel to a store and purchase life’s necessities. Shopping Transportation Services are provided to residents of our Main Service Areas of Saint Cloud, Kissimmee, and BVL. Shopping Transportation is currently being offered at a “Shared Cost” rate which allows both our clients and the Osceola Council On Aging to contribute to the actual operating cost of the transportation service. There is also a limited amount of DOEA (Department Of Elder Affairs) funding available for those who require additional funding assistance.

The Shared Cost Shopping Transportation Rate is simple: $4.00 for each person for round-trip service.
