Kaunoa’s Assisted Transportation Program provides critical assistance to persons 60 and older who have limited means of transportation and require support in order to maintain an independent lifestyle and continue to live in their own homes.

The transportation services are provided for medical appointments, business appointments, shopping for essentials, adult day care centers, visits to nursing homes, and other client requests.

Volunteers are needed on various days between Mondays and Friday, and at various times.


Candidates must have a valid driver’s license as well as a reliable car with current registration, insurance and safety check. Training is also provided. Qualified volunteers are also eligible to receive partial mileage reimbursement.

Seniors are assessed for eligibility prior to receiving Assisted Transportation services and priority is given to those in most need of assistance.

For more information on the Assisted Transportation Program, call Kaunoa Senior Services at 270-7310.
