What is the cost?
Fees vary based on the destination. We have a base fee for medical trips of $20 for Eads and within Kiowa County. Medical trips to Lamar, Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Denver, and other destinations are all donation based. However, a trip to Denver International Airport is $100.
Shopping/Fun trips may be scheduled each month to Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Lamar, and Garden City. The base cost of each trip is $50 for the minivan and $80 for the big bus or $10 per rider; whichever is greater.
Senior Citizen trips may also be scheduled.
Medical trips take precedence over shopping trips; however, scheduling is on a first-come-first-serve basis.
