Rides For Seniors
Uber is not just for the savvy, younger generations anymore. Tri-Town 55+ launched its “Rides for Seniors” program in April of 2017 to help those 65 and older in Madison, Chatham Borough and Chatham Township get to where they want to go, when they want to go – day or night – without the need of a smartphone.
Tri-Town 55+ Coalition, with the assistance of TransOptions and funding from the Grotta Fund for Senior Care, is working with GoGoGrandparent, an on-demand transportation company, to provide this on-demand car service program.
To participate in the program, users and/or caregivers must register and establish an account with a major credit card through GoGoGrandparent’s secured 800 number. Riders can then dial the 800 number to access a specially screened local driver from Uber/Lyft 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Through the Grotta Fund for Senior Care, Tri-Town 55+ Coalition is able to pay $5 toward each ride up to four rides a month (2 round trips). You are welcome and encouraged to use GoGoGrandparent as frequently as you wish, and go wherever you choose, but you will be charged the standard rate per mile and per minute for additional miles and monthly trips. GoGoGrandparent will provide the rates at the time of your call.
The GoGoGrandparent “Rides for Seniors” pilot program is one of the first key initiatives to be implemented by Tri-Town 55+ Coalition. The transportation initiative will not only serve the residents but also help local organizations and businesses as well.
