Krapf's Transportation - Rover Community Transportation
Paratransit service operating within Chester County.
Please note that out-of-county service of up to 15 minutes distanCE from the county line in any direction is available for medical needs only. Reservations must be made before 11:00am on the business day prior to the requested trip.


ROVER Community Transportation, in cooperation with Chester County, PennDOT and many of our local grocery
stores, is offering a temporary service for Chester County Seniors to schedule transportation to Grocery
Stores and Pharmacies that have advertised specific hours of operation dedicated to Seniors. Many grocery
stores in the county are dedicating their initial opening hour (or more) for Seniors Only to shop during the
COVID-19 outbreak.

To assist our Chester County Seniors with taking advantage of this opportunity, Chester County officials and
PennDOT have worked with ROVER to approve extended service hours in the mornings (and now on Saturday!)
for travel to participating grocery stores at no additional cost – these trips will still be only $1 each way. In
order to accommodate the expected demand, ROVER will transport you to the nearest participating grocery
store during the time they are offering the exclusive, senior-only access to make your purchases and return you
back home. The expanded service will be offered at the following times:
Until the end of the “exclusive senior-only” grocery store hours
--GIANT Grocery Stores (ALL) 6:00-7:00am
--CROP’s Fresh Market Place 7:00-8:00am
--WHOLE Foods (Devon/Exton) 7:00-8:00am
--ACME Grocery Stores (ALL) 7:00-9:00am
--TARGET Grocery Shopping (Wednesday Only) 8:00-9:00am

In addition, PennDOT has agreed to suspend the Restrictions on Same Day Rides for the Grocery/Pharmacy Trips
ONLY. This means we will do our best accommodate your trip request even if you do not call before 1:00pm
the day prior. We will have Customer Service Representatives on duty to handle your calls during these
expanded hours, as well. Last, but certainly not least, we will be scheduling with “social distancing” in mind and
limiting seating on each vehicle to maintain a proper distance between riders going to/from the grocery stores.
Understanding the vulnerability of our seniors, the idea is to minimize exposure opportunities and maximize the
opportunity to get your essential grocery and pharmacy needs fulfilled.

This expanded service will remain in effect until the Governor lifts the current restrictions
and recommendations in place to combat the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus.
