About:

COAST is a division of the Council on Aging & Human Services. With offices in Colfax, WA, COAST has been a transportation provider and broker for over 40 years. Its mission is to support the citizens within COAST's service area in maintaining a quality lifestyle while having the freedom to live in any urban or rural area of choice, regardless of what services are available nearby.

Services:

COAST serves citizens who live in five counties in Idaho (Latah, Nez Perce, Idaho, Lewis and Clearwater) and three counties in Washington (Asotin, Garfield, and Whitman) with rides fo rmedical, personal care, social, nutrition, and other needs. No age or disabled qualifications exist in Washington. In Idaho, citizens must be elderly or disabled to receive rides. Neither state has any income qualifications. Residents who are Medicaid qualified must seek transportation services through their respective state's Medicaid transportation broker. Recently, COAST has also received funding to provide rides to elderly or disabled citizens in Southern Spokane County who need to travel into any area served by the Spokane Transit Authority. COAST uses both paid drivers with Agency vehicles and volunteers using their personal vehicles to provide services. Volunteers are reimbursed mileage and are in control of their own schedule. New volunteers are always needed. COAST encourages citizens living within the local transit agency's service area (Pullman, Moscow, Lewiston, Clarkston) to utilize that agency for trips within the local service area. When the local transit's schedule or service are does not meet the client's needs, COAST may be able to help.
