Transportation Services

MCSS provides free social transportation to seniors, 60 years or older who live in our service area.  Our bus makes regular routes around the TriLakes area, and a recent Calendar of Events is always available.

Please call our Hotline @ 719-488-0076 to schedule a ride or to find out more information.

MCSS has partnered with Envida to help with private transportation to medical appointments, groceries, prescription pickup, YMCA,  and Tri-Lakes Cares IN EL PASO COUNTY. Envida also provides Medicaid and Wheelchair transportation.  Please call Envida @ 719-633-4677 to schedule a ride. 

We provide transportation to specific social events in the Tri-Lakes area. Our shuttle bus picks up seniors and returns them home. We contact riders the day before the event to make sure they wish to participate that day. Below are monthly rides we provide:

  • Every Monday and Thursday, Silver Key Connections Cafe Senior Lunches at Mountain Community Mennonite Church 643 CO-105, Palmer Lake, CO  80133
  • 2nd Thursday and 3rd Wednesday of month, Bingo after lunch at Monument Senior Center
  • 2nd Tuesday of month, Breakfast at local restaurant then shopping at Walmart
  • Restaurant outing every month
  • *Lunch and transportation are cancelled on federal holidays and inclement weather

Participants need to be physically able to enter and exit the shuttle bus safely with little assistance.  Our drivers are volunteers and may use our bus or their own vehicles. Because the safety of our clients is very important to us, all drivers have gone through DMV and security background checks.
