If they live in a Seniors apartment complex many have vans that can take people to certain things but usually for group trips like groceries. We have paratransit through our city bus service. There are also some car ride programs.

Depends on where you live.
Paratransit is pretty common, but it is not called that everywhere.
There might be a number of similar transports in larger cities.
Outlying areas, not so much.
To use things like Paratransit, one must call to make appointments for pickup delivery and re-pickup and ride home.
Sometimes mistakes are made, so it is important to have backup rides.
Usually, paratransit is for rides to Doc appointments, not groceries.
Do you have an "Area Agency on Aging" or similar? They can guide you.
A County Social Worker might be able to guide you.
Generally speaking, larger cities ahve more services than rural areas.

In our small city, there are 4 small buses that transport people to the grocery story and doctor's appointments.The fee varies based on income. Churches in the area make certain all elderly people have a way to services. Try asking the closest hospital out patient center. They should know.

Short answer, yes. In our county, that is. In Johnston Co., NC, the Community & Senior Services (formerly known as the Council on Aging) manages the local bus transit system, and we are continually processing folks that call in and need transportation assistance to get to doctor's appointments, etc.. However, there are qualifications that have to be obtained first. But call your local council on aging or your local transportation authority and ask if they provide transportation assistance concerning this matter. Oftentimes it is at no cost or very minimal to the rider. You know what they say, 'squeaky wheel gets the grease'!
