John O. Cate Memorial Van

FREE transport for Loudon residents to appointments in the Concord area!

The John O. Cate Memorial Van is a handicap-accessible van owned by the Town of Loudon and operated by the non-profit John O. Cate Memorial Van Association. Our charter is to “transport Loudon residents without charge to medical and other appointments when the citizen is in need of transportation.”

The van is equipped with a lift mechanism on one side to assist riders entering or exiting the vehicle. Within the van are seats and seatbelts for up to four (4) passengers and an area to safely secure one (1) occupied wheelchair. A driver and an assistant operate the van and assist the passenger(s).

The van is available for trips to appointments within the Concord area weekdays from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM. Requests for transport outside of normal hours of operation may be accepted depending on staff availability. Transportation may be arranged by calling the van Scheduler at 783-9502. Ride scheduling is on a first-come first-served basis so requests for transport should be made at least one (1) week in advance to ensure van availability.

The John O. Cate Memorial Van Association is always looking for more volunteers to help as drivers, assistants, schedulers and/or for other duties. If you think you would like to help out, please join us at our monthly meeting or call the Scheduler for more details.
