Harlingen Woman Struggles to Find Transportation
HARLINGEN – A Harlingen woman, considered legally blind, worries she can’t find transportation to her doctor’s appointments.
Etna Hudgions says she lost part of her eyesight about a year ago; she can still see, but her vision is unclear.
Hudgions lives alone and says she has no family, making her transportation situation even harder.
"The dilemma on our transportation is that we don’t have that many contractors," she says.
Jose Gonzalez with the Area Agency on Aging explains they used to have five providers with drivers, now there are only two.
He says they cover Hidalgo, Cameron, and Willacy County.
"Coming this June we're going out for solicitation, you know soliciting vendors and so hopefully maybe we can get some more," says Gonzalez.
He advises anyone in need of a ride for medical needs to call in advance because space is limited.
