Partnership Offers Transportation Options for Seniors

 

Elder Care Services, LocalSeniorDiscounts.com and Yellow Cab have joined together to address an overwhelming problem in our community: the need for additional transportation options for struggling seniors in our community.  Through the newly formed partnership, eligible seniors who are unable to afford transportation to medical appointments, the grocery store or to the drug store to fill their prescriptions can schedule a ride through Elder Care Services and Yellow Cab will provide the transportation.   Yellow Cab will also offer a discount to adults 50+ who have a LocalSeniorDiscounts.com membership card.  Membership cards are sold for $5.00 and proceeds benefit Elder Care Services.  The partnership will allow eligible seniors to be transported to and from their destinations through a reservation based approval process, scheduled in advance during normal business hours by contacting Elder Care Services at 245-5907.  Elder Care Services covers the cost of the rides through dedicated grant funding to assist seniors with transportation challenges.
