Getting People from Place to Place

Safe and Reliable Non-Medical Transportation for People who have Developmental Disabilities and other complex conditions.

Koinonia’s Transportation Services
The ability to be mobile is critically important for everyone, particularly people who have developmental disabilities. Reliable transportation allows us to participate in the community and to realize our individual goals, leading to greater life opportunities. Koinonia’s Transportation Services provide the best standard and care for transporting adults who have developmental disabilities. Our transportation department has been following COVID-19 guidelines to ensure the health and safety of all passengers and driver. 

Prior to boarding buses, each passenger is required to wear a mask, have their temperature taken, and maintain social distancing. Masks are also required to be worn during transportation, and the bus is cleaned and disinfected between each route and at the end of each day.

Vehicles are maintained by certified mechanics and are on a maintenance schedule. Transportation department vehicles are driven by staff who hold a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) to ensure the safety of our bus passengers and are insured to drive specially modified vehicles.

How is non-medical transportation paid for?
Non-medical transportation is a waiver-funded service that transports individuals to a variety of activities, including work, medical appointments, community activities, day trips, and social outings. Individuals throughout the community can access our transportation services through the Cuyahoga, Lorain, or Summit County Boards of Developmental Disabilities. The program provides transportation to Koinonia Enterprises Adult Day, Senior, and Career programs for all campus activities and offers daily transport for each individual who participates.
