A-LIFT — Adams County

Community Transit

A-LIFT (Adams County Community Transit) provides accessible

and affordable door-to-door transportation to older adults and

persons with mobility impairments.  Riders can travel with us to

medical and dental appointments, grocery shopping, meal sites,

and community-based care programs.

 

A-LIFT uses small buses and a station wagon to maximize

funding and extend hours and boundaries.  Safety and quality

service is our goal.  A-LIFT ensures individual independence,

provides mobility for self-sufficiency, and the opportunity to

participate fully in the life of the community.
