Senior Taxi Voucher and Bus Token Program

Transportation costs can often be a limiting factor for seniors on a fixed income. One of the ideas that came out of Public Safety Summit a few months ago was the creation of a taxi voucher and bus token program for seniors, a suggestion brought to my office by the Glassell Park Seniors. Now, my office will be offering free taxi vouchers and bus tokens once a month to all seniors. You can pick up the vouchers and tokens at the Glassell Park District Office – the first give-away will be this Friday, January 12, from 9 to 11AM, and look for updates for future give away dates. My office is always looking for programs and ideas that will let CD13 residents feel safer in their neighborhoods and find independence in their lives. What’s your idea?
