How to Qualify 

To be eligible for NESA services, you must be:

 

  • 60 years old or older
  • Live in northeast San Antonio (east of San Pedro, inside Loop 1604, on the north side of IH35, also including Windcrest, Royal Ridge, Camelot, and adjoining areas of Bexar County.  See map on last page.)
  • Do not drive anymore, or drive far; or live with someone who drives but works full time.
  • You must be ambulatory.  If you are wheelchair-bound, you will not be able to use our transportation services, but you can use grocery delivery services.

When you call in, we will fill out an intake form. Then our Outreach Nurse will schedule a home visit to make sure you fit the program.

After you are approved, you may begin calling in your appointments 1-3 weeks in advance. Only 1 ride per week is allowed .

Due to liability, we will not transport clients to outpatient procedures nor any procedure requiring an IV sedation.
