CKCATS is on the move. As I told you in May, the COVID-19 Pandemic has been devastating for many people in our community. It has also had a huge impact on our Central KY Community Action Transportation Services (CKCATS). As of March 23rd, trips were down 75-85%. CKCATS is still transporting dialysis patients and senior citizens. Active Day, Blessed Assurance and Communicare facilities continue to remain closed until further notice.

During April, May and June, CKCATS continued to see very low numbers and growth is coming on a much smaller scale than anticipated. The CKCATS staff is currently fully staffed and working with CDC standards to assure our clients and drivers are safe during their trips.

CKCATS is very excited about adding Hardin and Meade County to our transportation services. This is under the Title III-B Senior Transportation Services. This service will be available Monday thru Friday from 8:30 am to 2 pm. There are certain restrictions that apply but these free trips will help the seniors of that area. If you live in Hardin or Meade County, please contact the CKCATS Office at 1-800-242-8225 to get additional information. With the addition of these two counties, CKCATS is proud to service the entire Lincoln Trail District.

More to come, much more……
