M.A.T.P. - Medical Assistance Transportation Program

This is available to anyone who has a current access card from the Department of Public Welfare.

These persons must first come to our office to enroll for this program. Transportation to and from medical appointments and pharmacies are the only trips that are eligible. This funding pays 100% of the fare.

Hours of Operation - 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Employment Transportation Assistance Program (ETAP)

The ETAP program is available to assist individuals with their transportation to and from work. Because Fulton County is a rural area and little public transit is available, the program focuses on assisting individuals to obtain and repair their own cars. FCFP will transport a client to and from work but it is limited to 35 miles from McConnellsburg. The ETAP program will also reimburse mileage for clients, co-workers, friends, and family to transport an individual to and from employment. The program is subject to state fund availability; any or all portions of the program may change or discontinue at any point in time.

Hours of Operation - Arrangements may be made during business hours of Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Transportation services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Cost - The first month (20 days) will require a $2.00 co-pay per round trip ($10.00 per week). The second month (days 21-40) will require a $3.00 co-pay per round trip ($15.00 per week). Months 3 through 6 (days 41+) will require a $5.00 co-pay per round trip ($25.00 payable in advance).

 

Persons with Disabilities (PwD) Program

FCFP completes enrollment, verifies the disability and determines eligibility for the PwD program, which allows individuals age 18-59 with disabilities to access affordable transportation through the Shared Ride Program. Transportation is accessed through the HBF-AAA.
