Accessing Cancer Care

Accessing Cancer Care provides access to transportation for cancer treatment and support for individuals in Penobscot, Piscataquis and Knox counties. Transportation is addressed in several ways (utilizing volunteer drivers, taxis, agency vehicles, and friend/family reimbursement) in order to meet individual needs and provide services as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. As Penquis/Lynx is not the regional transportation provider in Knox County, but realizes individuals dealing with cancer need some financial support, we will be offering mileage reimbursement to residents of Knox County. Residents of Penobscot and Piscataquis counties will have the option of mileage reimbursement or a ride.
