While an agreement between the Area Agency on Aging of East Texas and GoBus has permitted all seniors age 60 and over to ride free, funding constraints have forced the AAA and GoBus to enter into a new agreement for senior trips. Effective October 1, 2014, the Area Agency on Aging of East Texas can only pay for trips to medical appointments, dialysis, and senior centers for seniors who have qualified for AAA assistance. Seniors making a trip not covered by AAA or who have not qualified for AAA assistance must pay regular GoBus fares. To see if you qualify for AAA assistance, please call GoBus at 800-590-3371.
Trips provided by AAA for qualified seniors age 60 & older at no charge:
- Medical Appointments
- Senior Centers
With out of town trips we ask you to be ready by 7:00 AM and predict arrival time to be 10:00 AM. However, you may be asked to be ready at an earlier time. In the event of a time change, you will receive a call from our dispatch office.
Please do not schedule doctor's appointments before 10:00 AM when traveling out of county.
