Community Transportation Services Ltd.
The Community Transportation Services Ltd. (CTS) of Old Forge, New York was founded in 1987 a not-for-profit organization 501 (c) (3). Our mission is to provide transportation for the elderly, disabled and disadvantaged persons in the Town of Webb and adjoining communities to be provided on as an as needed basis. There is no public transportation in this area. Therefore, we provide the only type of service of any kind, free of charge.
Our organization is all volunteer. We transport persons to medical and dental appointments both locally and to Utica and beyond. On an annual basis, we transport approximately 350 riders making over 450 stops.
Our income is through free-will donations from town governments, businesses, groups and individuals. Our annual budget is about $24,000 of which over sixty percent (60%) is for insurance.
If this idea of community support fits in with your ideas about life, volunteerism, donations, etc., we welcome you to join us.

Program & History
In 1983 the churches in our area identified the need for transportation of the citizens of the Central Adirondack communities of Old Forge, Eagle Bay, Inlet, Raquette Lake and Big Moose. Members from each church formed a board of directors with a borrowed van from one of the churches and began transporting residents to medical appointments, social services appointments, church services and shopping trips.
