ABOUT US

Senior Transportation Connection (STC) provides comprehensive, coordinated, efficient and affordable transportation to seniors and adults with disabilities throughout Cuyahoga County.

STC serves individuals who have mobility challenges due to age, lack of access, disability, frailty or inability to drive. More than 12,000 registered riders live in 37 zip codes covering 71 percent of Cuyahoga County. One third of passengers use a wheelchair, walker or other aid to mobility.

STC will take you to a medical appointment, including dialysis, rehabilitation and treatment, senior centers meals and programs, grocery shopping, personal service appointments and social opportunities. We’ll take you places so you can remain independent, healthy and connected to the community.

STC was founded in 2005, after Cuyahoga County transportation providers began exploring coordination and shared services. Research was commissioned by the Mt. Sinai Health Care Foundation.

The not-for-profit was initially funded through Mt. Sinai Health Care Foundation, Cleveland Foundation, United Way Senior Success Vision Council, Jewish Community Federation’s Community Services for Older Adults, Saint Luke’s Foundation, Deaconess Community Foundation and The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland, among others. Learn more about today’s funders at Charitable Support.

STC partners and collaborates with communities and other organizations. Those partners define where we travel, what passengers pay and what destinations are permitted. This relationship helps your community keep transportation affordable and rider fees low. Charitable donations and grants help cover STC’s operating costs and purchase new vehicles. As a not-for-profit organization, STC places passenger and community needs first.

Drivers escort passengers door-to-door to ensure safety and provide a personal touch. They will help with up to 5 parcels on shopping trips. They are trained to keep riders safe, including how to help those who use a walker, cane or wheelchair – one third of our passengers do. Drivers are certified in CPR and complete National Safety Council defensive driving training.

STC is on the road nearly one million miles every year. That requires guidelines to keep services efficient and organized. See Scheduling a Ride for details. A list of the communities and agencies that contract with STC can be found HERE 

Thank you for your interest in STC. We look forward to taking you where you need to go!

Help STC Get Going on #GivingTuesday

Nov. 28  is #GivingTuesday - Your gift to STC keeps seniors on the go!
Senior Transportation Connection joins charities across the U.S. in giving thanks on #GivingTuesday. We ask you to contribute to our Mission to provide accessible transportation to older adults. Passengers Barbara and Allan recently talked with us about why they value STC:
“The drivers are prompt & helpful.” “The bus is clean.” “I don’t have to depend on someone to get where I need to go.”
Each year, STC covers one million miles across Cuyahoga County, in all weather and road conditions, delivering over 100,000 trips.  Donations are essential to keep the STC fleet in top form. They pay for driver training and the latest scheduling software. But, it's more than that -- Your donation helps Allan get to the senior center for lunch, or Barbara to see her doctor. Your donation helps to connect our passengers with the destinations that keep them healthy and independent!
Please give the gift of independence and mobility to thousands of Cuyahoga County seniors. Support Senior Transportation Connection & keep our passengers connected, healthy and part of our community. Make your gift here today!
Thank you for your #GivingTuesday gift to STC.
