New Ride Finding Service for Older Adults and People With Disabilities
TJPDC and JABA’s new mobility management program is now taking calls from older adults and people with disabilities who need rides in Region 10. Staff is working with CAT, Jaunt, UTS and other transportation providers to help people find rides. There is no charge for the transportation counseling service and anyone can call the toll-free number, 888-879-7379, to receive help navigating the public transportation system.
Staff will also be recording unmet transportation needs to use in developing solutions for future years. Recording all the transportation needs for underserved populations will help local governments and providers better understand transportation needs and areas to focus on. Please share the number with anyone in your network who you think might be interested in this service.
