We operate a door-to-door call response transportation system within Montezuma County. We also provide transportation to Dove Creek and Durango for medical appointments only.
We are under the auspice of Montezuma County but we are self-sufficient. We run our program through grants and fees for service. We started MoCo Public Transportation in 2002.
We receive funding from the Older American Act for Senior Citizens (age 60 and older). With this grant, seniors may ride within Montezuma County on a voluntary donation base. No Senior Citizen will be refused services due to the inability to pay.
We are a Medicaid provider for non-emergency medical transportation. Call IntelliRide at (855) 489-4999 to book appointments “Medicaid Only” and to check to see if you are approved for non-emergency medical transportation. If you are approved then there will not be a charge.
We are a Medicaid provider for the Home Community Based Services non-medical transportation. If you are on HCBS through Montezuma County Department of Health contact your caseworker to check for eligibility. There is no charge to the client.
We receive funding from a Colorado Service Block Grant, Montezuma County Department of Social Services, and the Colorado Department of Transportation. We receive a community support grant from the City of Cortez, Town of Mancos. Our fees for services are also a large part of our funding.
Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Fees are for a one-way trip. If you need to go to other places then you will be charged for each extra stop. When you call to schedule a ride, be sure to tell dispatch every stop you need to make. The last pick up time for Dolores, Mancos, and the Casino is 3:00 pm, the last pickup for Cortez is 3:30 pm. The first pickup is 7:00 am.
