TRIP Senior Transportation Program
If your parents don’t drive and they are 60+ or adults living with a disability – or if you are in a similar situation – a free program from Mystic Valley Elder Services can help you stay active.
TRIP gives riders mileage reimbursement money to pay friends, neighbors, and in some cases, certain relatives to take them anywhere they need or want to go, any day, any time. Riders get to doctors and stores. They visit friends and family. They dine out or enjoy other social activities.
TRIP helps people expand their range of destinations, even if they use the senior center’s van service or The Ride. Call (781) 324-7705 to apply.
