Transportation

Transportation Services

CRI maintains a fleet of wheelchair accessible vans which we use to provide transportation to consumers in need in Erie County.  Rides are scheduled and provided for the following reasons:

  • Transportation to/from medical appointments;
  • Transportation for Vocational/Employment (job related) reasons; 
  • Transportation when Case Managers will be assisting a consumer with advocacy-related issues;
  • Transportation to/from events considered to be a “special request” such as a wedding, funeral, and other events that promote Independent Living (pending staff availability);
  • Transportation to/from meetings at, or scheduled by, Community Resources for Independence; 
  • Transportation for all consumers who are on the Agency Model of Care through Community Resources for Independence for “other” reasons upon request; and
  • Transportation for United States’ Veterans.

If you are in need of transportation services by means of a CRI van, rides must be scheduled at least a week in advance.  Please note that transportation will be scheduled on a “first come, first served” basis.  Also, be aware that there will be times that an extended waiting period may result from several rides being provided on a particular day.  With the exception of “special events,” rides will be provided between 8:00 AM-5:00 PM Monday-Friday.

To schedule a ride please contact the Erie Center for Independent Living
814-838-7222 or 1-800-530-5541
