In cooperation with the Erie County Department of Senior Services, the Town operates five VANS to pick up Senior Citizens living in their own home or apartment (who cannot use any conventional means of transportation) and take them to the doctor, food shopping and other necessary services.
The suggested donation for a one-way trip is $3.00 but each person determines what he or she can pay. The van runs six days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Please try to make your appointments early in the day, allowing plenty of time for your return home. One wheelchair van is available and the suggested donation is $8 for a one-way trip. Residents must specify that they need the wheelchair van service.
Van reservations for MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS can be made a minimum of 24 hours and a maximum of two weeks in advance (the sooner the better). All OTHER APPOINTMENTS (shopping, banking, etc.) can be made a minimum of 24 hours in advance and a maximum of one week in advance. Appointments will be scheduled on a space availability basis – medical being the priority. CALL 858-RIDE (858-7433) BETWEEN 8:30 AM AND 4:20 PM TO MAKE YOUR VAN RESERVATION.
