What is the cost?

Fees vary based on the destination. We have a base fee for medical trips of $5 within Eads and $20 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 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. 

Handicapped Accessible?

Yes. An ADA van is available that holds one wheelchair and a helper. 

Note: The rider must provide a helper if needed. The Transit does not provide a helper.

Medicaid Approved?

Yes, with prior authorization

Helpers?

Helpers for any rider do not pay a fee if they are only assisting that rider. It is at the discretion of the Transit driver if a helper is required for clients with special needs or assistance. Transit does not provide helpers. 

Denver trips?

The Transit will accept at least one medical appointment to Denver per month. It will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. Additional Denver trips will be scheduled as available.

Kiowa County is dedicated to communicating the results of the Healthy Choices Program and the Transit Services funded by the Community Service Block Grant (CSBG).
