Program Information and Services:

Transportation Voucher Program – How it works

  • You’ll receive vouchers used like checks to reimburse drivers for travel you need
  • You recruit your own drivers
  • Additional transportation options may be available to meet your needs
  • You’ll develop your own individualized transportation plan which includes your monthly funding allocations for voucher program travel
  • The program could end depending on funding so you would work with the Transportation Coordinator Sunshine Lemieux to ensure you’re able to continue getting where you need to go
  • Public transit rides are not eligible for reimbursement

Eligibility

Participants must have a disability or be 65 or older with barriers to transportation and reside within the eight counties in Northwest Wisconsin served by NCIL and within geographic areas in which public transportation or paratransit services are not available or, if available, do not adequately meet the needs of the consumers due to hours or days of operation, limited service area or other service limitation.  Participants’ income must fall below 200% of the federally-established poverty guideline.

    Volunteer Driver Program

    Drivers

    Our volunteer drivers provide transportation for the elderly and individuals with disabilities to medical appointments, grocery stores, social activities, church, and other important independent living activities.

    Drivers may give rides any days that they are available and are reimbursed mileage at the current federal rate of 57.5 per mile to and from their home.

    We specifically could use drivers in the Ashland, Hayward, Minong, Mellen, and Solon Springs areas but all locations are welcome.  Trips may be local in nature or further away.

    Drivers are required to have a valid driver’s license, proof of auto insurance, and pass a background check.
