Transportation and assisted transportation are two of the most sought after services provided by Hancock County Senior Services. The safety of our passengers is the primary concern of our agency. Our drivers are trained and certified through the WV Division of Public Transit. All drivers possess a WV Class D Driver’s License endorsement.
Our transport van arrives at your door to take you to your medical appointment, to shop, to the bank or any other trip anywhere in Hancock County, WV; East Liverpool, Steubenville, and Wintersville, Ohio and Paris, Pa. Should you be a diabetic, use oxygen, or have other special needs you may be required to wait at the physician’s office an extended period of time and need to plan accordingly. Following your appointment we’ll pick you up at your drop off site and take you home.
