The mission of the Liberty Access Bus is to help citizens age in place and we strive to help the older and disabled residents of Liberty maintain their independence and remain in their homes for as long as possible. To ensure that our mission is upheld, priority will be scheduling of essential trips. 

Transportation on essential trips for adults 60 and older is free of charge. Physically challenged individuals (ages 18 - 59 with current Social Security Disability Award) may utilize the Liberty Access Bus free of charge thanks to a MEHTAP Grant.
