Hello, New York is a big state. Where exactly do you want the service to pick the person up, and where is the funeral? What options have you considered? Bus? Taxi? Does the person need care other than just someone to drive them? What amount do you consider inexpensive? Thanks for any additional information.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
The person wants to be driven there. It is about 50 miles. They do not want a bus or taxi. I am sure there are elderly services that do this. The elderly person lives in Long Island, Suffolk County NY.

I found no agencies that would drive a single person from Long Island anywhere. Here is what is offered:Long IslandBus TransportationThe Nassau County Senior Citizen Leisure Passport entitles senior citizens age 60 and over to half-fare on all county-operated buses at all hours, seven days a week.Long Island Rail Road (LIRR)Senior citizens age 65 and over may use their Medicare card, driver's license or birth certificate at any ticket office or aboard a train to receive half fare on the Long Island Railroad.Taxi ServiceThe Long Island Taxi and Transportation Operators Association offers 10% discounts off all regular fares to senior citizens in a number of Nassau County communities.Able-Ride/Paratransit ProgramMTA Long Island Bus provides a shared ride, curb-to-curb paratransit service for persons who have a physical or mental disability and are unable to use the fixed route bus service. The fee is $3.50 each way.For more information on any of these services, visit Nassau County's website. Here are some other possibilities (keep in mind that without addresses, you can't check prices. They don't offer quotes in miles.): https://www.groundlink.com/adwords/newyork/carservice.html?gclid=CJCAk7qB0MwCFQhkhgod6tUKKA http://www.alllongislandcarservices.com/ http://www.sunnylimos.com/?gclid=CJTP_daB0MwCFcYkhgod4V0ABQ If the person belongs to a senior center, church or synagogue, they may have volunteers who drive the elderly.
