Transportation for Seniors

The Senior and Transportation Services Department offers Elderly and Disabled Transportation for medical appointments, grocery & pharmacy shopping, personal appointments and senior center programs. Transportation for out-of-town doctor appointments is also available on a limited basis (see schedule below).
