Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission Transit Systems have expanded transportation access to include elderly, low-income and disabled riders in parts of Madera County.

The five-year agreement with the Madera County Board of Supervisors will provide low-cost rides on Fresno EOC’s Medical Escort, Senior Bus, Madera County Connection and MCC Dial-A-Ride services for unincorporated areas around the cities of Madera and Chowchilla.

Seniors, disabled and low-income residents in unincorporated parts of eastern Madera County will be able to access these ride services.

The Medical Escort service transports residents from Oakhurst, Bass Lake, Coarsegold, Raymond, Ahwahnee, and North Fork to medical appointments in the Madera, Fresno and Clovis areas.

The Senior Bus provides medical transportation to medical appointments, senior centers, nutrition programs, shopping centers and businesses in eastern Madera County for individuals with disabilities or over the age of 60.

MCC Connection system will operate on three fixed routes serving eastern Madera County, Madera Community College, Valley Children’s Hospital, La Vina, Ripperdan, Eastin Arcola, Fairmead and the Chowchilla area. All buses are wheelchair accessible.

Fresno EOC Transit Systems previously served only Fresno County residents.

“Our transit systems, with over 36 years of experience, with competitive prices, helps us meet the needs of the community through providing safe and affordable transportation,” Michelle Tutunjian, Fresno EOC’s enterprise officer, stated in a press release.
