Escorted Transportation Service
This program is currently full and not accepting new clients. To be added to our wait list, please call 847.242.6257. We apologize for any inconvenience.
This volunteer-based program provides ambulatory seniors over the age of 60 with transportation to and from medical and dental appointments Monday through Friday for appointments scheduled between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. As a rider, your home and medical/dental appointment must both be located within the following areas:
- South of Half Day Road/Route 22
- North of Howard Street
- East of Milwaukee Avenue in Morton Grove, Niles and South Glenview
- East of I-294 in Glenview, Northbrook, Deerfield and Bannockburn
- East to Lake Michigan
The volunteer driver provides round trip, door-to-door service and waits during the appointment. The driver is not able to make other stops. There is a $12 round-trip fee which will be billed to you at the end of the month. Riders DO NOT give money to the driver. (New Trier Township residents are eligible for a $6 round-trip fee.)
Please note that Escorted Transportation Service (ETS) is intended for the occasional appointment; multiple requests per week by an individual typically cannot be accommodated.
To participate in ETS, call North Shore Senior Center to register at 847.784.6052. A form will be sent to you for completion. Once registered, you will be given the ETS phone number which is the voicemail line for transportation requests. Please note: All requests for rides must be made two weeks in advance.
