Central Virginia Alliance for Community Living, Inc.
Who We Are
Central Virginia Alliance for Community Living (CVACL) offers several transportation services for people who are 60 and older and those between 18-59 who have a disability. All transportation programs begin with an assessment. After contacting the intake specialist at 434-385-9070, you will be assigned to a case manager. The case manager will contact you within 15 business days to schedule a time to assess your needs, ensure you are eligible for the service, and enroll you in the program. Once enrolled, you will receive a letter in the mail listing the services for which you were approved. At that time you can schedule your rides at least one week in advance.
Dial-A-Ride provides individuals aged 60 and over with transportation to medical appointments, medical care (Dialysis, physical therapy, counseling), pharmacies, and grocery stores. Wheelchair-accessible vans are available. Because Medicaid provides medical transportation, individuals with that coverage are not eligible for CVACL medical transportation (but may qualify for non-Medicaid eligible appointments). Transportation is provided on a first-come-first-served basis.
New Freedom Transportation is named after what it provides. The program allows adults 21 years old and older who are living with a disability the “new freedom” of transportation to medical appointments, pharmacies, and grocery stores. This non-emergency transportation system is operated in conjunction with the Dial-A-Ride program and follows all of the same guidelines.
