What to Expect
Once you've scheduled senior transportation services, a senior center van will pick you up at your home at the time you requested. The van may make additional stops between your pickup and your destination, so make sure you allow plenty of time for travel. The van will drop you off at your designated location, then come back to pick you up when you're finished.
For discounted bus passes, cash or money order are accepted.
