JFSA’s Shuttle-On-The-Go! provides free round-trip local transportation to current JFSA clients. The shuttle helps older adults remain active and independent, by providing rides to medical appointments, personal appointments, visiting loved ones in hospitals and nursing homes, grocery shopping, social engagements, etc. Upon request, our friendly driver can escort you door-to-door from your home to the van.

Scheduling priority is given to medical appointments and to those who:

  • Live in an independent living setting and cannot access transportation services.
  • Do not drive or do not have family members to provide transportation. Consideration may be made for clients who do drive but cannot drive on a certain day due to the nature of the appointment (eye exam/procedure), due to inclement weather or due to the distance of the destination or to those who have family members who need occasional respite may also be considered.
  • Do not qualify for subsidized transportation services through Passport/MyCare Ohio or through Holocaust Survivor support funds.
