As a rider on the Senior Center transportation, the center provides a low cost ride to medical appointments and shopping for $2.00 a ride.  Due to the time it takes to process the payments, the center is going to a prepay card system.  One can purchase a ten ride card for $20 which will then be punched by the driver when you arrive for your ride.  These cards will be good until all ten rides are punched then you can purchase another card.

We will be transitioning to using only these cards by January 1, 2016.  You have several options for purchasing a card.  When at the senior center, you can purchase a card at the front desk.  You can mail a check for $20 to the center with a note what it is for.  Be sure to put your driver’s license information on the check.  Or you can purchase the card over the phone (860)441-6785  and use a credit card for payment.

If you have any questions regarding this change, please feel free to call Mary Jo at 860-441-6636 or Cindy Morrison at 860-441-6623.
