Senior Citizens Shuttle Service Knoxville

Among Knoxville’s many programs for the elderly is the Knox County CAC Transit System, a senior citizen’s shuttle service, which increases “access to community resources and services for Knoxville-Knox County residents who have no other means of transportation by providing safe, reasonably comfortable transportation.” According to their website, priority is given for seniors requiring dialysis and cancer therapy; health department clinic and other medical treatment, therapy for severe arthritis; post-stroke and other trauma; and grocery, drug store shopping and other essential errands. That means that if you have a qualifying errand to run, a doctor’s appointment to get to, or other essential trip, you can get a cheap (50¢ to 3.00 for a one-way trip) ride to your destination.
