North Liberty to host Drop-In Transportation Assistance Program Registration

City of North Liberty

NORTH LIBERTY– Earlier this fall, the City of North Liberty launched a new Transportation Assistance Program to help residents make essential quality-of-life trips. So far, it’s registered more than 60 residents for the program. Staff will host drop-in registration dates in December and January (registration is always available online and by appointment).
The program allows qualified North Liberty residents, for $1 per ride, to call a Yellow Cab of Iowa City taxi to travel for groceries, get to the bank, visit a doctor, connect to a bus or certain other essential quality-of-life trips scheduled Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. or Saturday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Residents can be eligible for this program if they don’t have access to vehicle, face financial difficulty or are permanently or temporarily disabled. To use the program, residents apply, provide proof they qualify and then receive a card allowing them to use the program.
Drop-in registration will be available Monday, Dec. 30, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the North Liberty Living Center, 410 Ashley Ct.; and Thursday, Jan. 2, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Jefferson Point, 45 E Jefferson St.
The registration meetings are filled on a first-come, first-served basis and limited to 20 applicants per session.
Applicants can complete an online application and make an appointment for an office visit to complete verification. More information about the program and other transportation options are available at northlibertyiowa.org/transit.
