The City of Solon offers both in-town and out-of-town unassisted, curb-to-curb transportation service. Transportation services are available to City of Solon residents who register as a rider and who are 60 years of age or older or an adult with social security approved disabilities. However, transportation cannot be offered to individuals who reside in a care facility or a senior living community that provides its own transportation services. Transportation is for medical appointments, routine errands, recreation, religious and social events.
The Department of Senior Services will make every attempt to accommodate appointment requests for transportation service. However, we cannot accommodate all transportation requests or meet all needs; our services are designed to supplement your transport requirements. Therefore, having alternate ride options available is strongly encouraged. If a request cannot be fulfilled by the Department of Senior Services, upon request you will be referred to alternate transportation service(s).
