Catholic Charities’ transportation services primarily serve low-income residents, people with disabilities and people 65 and older. Thanks to rising fuel costs, the programs have increased in popularity.
In the spring of 2021, the program conducted about 3,800 rides. This spring, more than 5,000 trips were requested, an increase of more than 30%. Catholic Charities conducts about 235 trips a day and expects to complete 55,000 trips this year.
