When possible, please call the MASS office at least 24 hours in advance to schedule a ride. This will allow you a better chance to secure the time needed. A donation is suggested for this service, and no one age 60 or over will be refused a ride due to inability to pay.

MASS does offer special transportation trips with volunteer drivers, available to seniors 60 years or older for these ‘out-of-area’ medical appointments Monday through Friday.* 

*There is a suggested donation for this service and it is advisable to call at least a week in advance to schedule a volunteer driver.

Transportation Certificates
MASS has punch tickets available for our transportation services. If you are looking for a gift for someone special, this would be a great choice. Contact the MASS office at 815-539-7700 for more information.
*The cost of a 12 stop in town ticket for ambulatory clients is only $20.  

Regularly Scheduled Van Transportation

Free hearing screenings are conducted at the Mendota Civic Center every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month. Hours are from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Hearing aid batteries are available at the MASS office. Batteries are $6.95 for a pack of six. Used batteries are collected as well as the old fashioned “over the ear” hearing aids which are refurbished and given to clients who are unable to afford new ones. These items can also be dropped off at MASS.

​MASS Potlucks
Coffee With a Cop
MASS is hosting Coffee with a Cop quarterly instead of monthly. This is your chance to sit down 1 on 1 with Chief Smith and discuss concerns or issues that are important to you. In a relaxed and neutral area, it is a personal conversation that is as important to the officer as it is to you. Chief Smith will join us soon. (Date will be announced when we receive it.) Stop in for a cup of coffee, a snack and your chance to talk with Mendota Police.  
Driver's Review Course
MASS is offering a Rules of the Road  Driver’s Review Course on Monday, June 25, 2018  in the Feik Senior Parlor at the Mendota Civic Center beginning at 9:30 AM. The course is free to everyone of any age. This course is designed to assist participants in preparing for the driving examination. Please call: 815-539-7700 to register.
