The Office of Transportation provides transportation for eligible seniors and individuals with disabilities living in DeKalb County. We are committed to providing the best services possible to help people reach their destinations and remain active.

Transportation rides are provided through the Georgia Department of Human Services Coordinated Transportation System which contracts with providers who operate Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant vehicles, including vans that are wheelchair accessible.





The Transportation Division wants to make transportation accessible and affordable for everyone. We do this through a variety of programs:

Department of Human Services Coordinated Transportation Services

The Transportation Division provides curb-to-curb transportation services for seniors 60 years of age and older to medical appointments, dialysis and therapy. Services are for non-emergency medical appointments only.

Transportation for medical and dialysis appointments can only be provided to locations within 25 miles of the Maloof Building, which is located at 1300 Commerce Dr., Decatur, GA 30030.

The County does not provide medical transportation to locations that exceed this distance. Transportation is also not provided for surgical procedures.

DeKalb County Human Services Quality of Life Transportation Program:

The DeKalb County Human Services Quality of Life Transportation Program is designed to help older adults get out of their homes and be more active within their communities. Qualifying participants can use this program to have drivers, of their choosing, take them to the grocery store, department stores, and other places within the community.  The program does have destination limits and participation requires a small cost share/fee.

For more information, call DeKalb County’s Transportation Line at (770) 322-2967 or email





There is a cost share for medical transportation. A sliding fee scale based on income is used to determine the cost for medical and dialysis transportation.

An administrative fee is assessed for the Quality-of-Life transportation program.





New participants must call and register for transportation services. Current participants are advised to call and schedule their request for transportation at least 3 days in advance. The County must be informed, in advance, of any special accommodations or needs.
