BaCo Transport is looking to expand services to rural areas

BaCo Transport is looking to expand our service to the whole county in stages. I am working with MRHA, HEALTH TRAN, both state agencys and WCMCAA, a local agency in Appleton city.

"BaCo Transport needs help! BaCo is looking to expand out into the County providing certain agreements are completed by our County's largest care provider BCMH. What we are looking for are volunteers to transport residents from Adrian, Rich Hill and other small towns in our County.

Our program depends on volunteers to drive and provide their own
vehicle. There will be reimbursement for occupied mileage. We are
working with Missouri Rural Health Association (MRHA) and Health Tran to provide this service to seniors 55+. As we grow we may be able to help handicap and other residents who have no transportation for health appointments. 

Right now we are providing City of Butler residents only, but more than just health appointments. 

We need staffing and volunteers to expand out program. We want to assist other small towns who need transportation services for their community.

Please contact Alvin Griffin for more information at 660-679-7255 Again BaCo Transport is a non profit, 501c3 organization established to help our seniors in Bates County."
