Federal funding was secured by the Allen County Council on Aging to provide rural transportation to all residents of Allen County. This program is available for a one-w ay trip fee of $3.00.
Seniors age 60 and overqualify for our transportation services at a suggested donation of $2.00 per one-way trip.
For example, if you need transportation from Fort Wayne to Woodburn, Leo or New Haven, or from outlying Allen County towns into Fort Wayne or other Allen County towns, you would qualify for Countilink.
Trips are provided to the doctor, pharmacy, grocery store, shopping, beauth/barber shop-anywhere you may need to go in Allen County.
This new public transportation service will be provided in Allen County where Citilink does not provide bus or van service - transit trips tha tend and/or begin outside of FortWayne. For example, a mother with two children living just outside of Monroeville needing to take her children to Parkview Hospital on State Street will be able to do so via public transportation. This new service will be able to transport people of all ages in rural Allen County.
