Getting around is vital for seniors who need to go to doctor’s appointments, shop for groceries, and see family and friends. If your elderly loved one has a license but has some mobile challenges, they may qualify for a disability placard or license plate. 

The N.C Division of Motor Vehicles issues these, and applicants must fill the application form and have it signed by a physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner. You can learn more about applying for a disability placard or license plate here.

If you have a loved one who is physically or mentally impaired and can not use public transportation or operate a motor vehicle, there are options that can help. The Mecklenburg Transportation System (MTS) offers residents special transportation services to help them get to and from their medical appointments, paid employment, grocery shopping, and more.

You can visit their website or contact the Transportation Services Line at 704-336-4547 to learn more about these services and their availability.
