Since much of Waldo County is rural, finding transportation if you do not have a car or can not drive can be a problem. One thing we found that many people are not aware that there is already an existing public transportation service available in Waldo County and they have options available to EVERYONE.
Before calling Gift of a Lift first call Waldo CAP Mid-Coast Public Transportation Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (207) 338-4769. Waldo CAP uses public funds to provide public transportation. Often they can offer a solution. The Belfast City Police offer rides to medical appointments from a Belfast location to a Belfast doctor’s office and return. Passengers must be able to get into and out of the vehicle without assistance. To schedule a ride, call: 338-2420. If these options can not help, then please call Gift of a Lift (GOAL).
After having to postpone the state date for Gift of a Lift (GOAL) due to COVID, we are very excited to announce that in September 2022 Aging Well in Waldo County (AWWC) launched the all-volunteer transportation program Gift of a Lift (GOAL). This project seeks to allow people, as they age, to be able to enjoy meaningful lives while living in their homes. The service is free transportation for local medical appointments, errands, socializing, classes, exercises, volunteering, shopping or other activities.
If you want to be a driver, a volunteer serving on the committee or need a ride call 207-218-0207 option 3 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
