In-County Bus Transportation

The Otsego County United Way is partnered with the OCCOA to provide a Medical Transportation program.

People needing transportation to in-county medical appointments are encouraged to contact the Otsego County Bus System (OCBS) at (989) 732-6224, ext. 1.

Each bus and van has a lift for people unable to walk up the stairs of the buses or step into the vans. Drivers are trained to safely assist riders in and out of their vehicles. If necessary, caregivers (one per rider) may accompany patients going to and from medical appointments (at no charge to the caregiver).

The cost for older adults (age 60 and older) and persons living with disabilities is currently $2.00 for a one-way trip. Financial assistance for OCBS bus fare is available to those who qualify through the OCCOA. Please contact OCCOA Medical Transport Specialist Theresa Ross at the OCCOA at (989) 748-4084 on Tuesdays, between 7:45 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. to find out if you qualify.
