Volunteer Driver Program

Vernon County residents of all ages can request rides to and from destinations within a 100 mile radius of Viroqua.  The department makes every effort to fulfill trip requests, however volunteer resources are limited and schedules fill up very quickly, so a trip request does not guarantee that a ride is furnished.  At times, people may be asked to reschedule their appointments.


This is a door-through-door service.  Riders are picked up from a starting location and are taken to their requested destination.  Any rider who needs more assistance is asked to bring an attendant to help them to and from their appointments.  There is no charge for the attendant to ride.  The Unit on Aging does not provide personal attendants.

 

Co-payments are based on mileage- 
   
under 25 miles... $5.00 
25-49 miles... $10.00
50-74 miles... $15.00 etc.
