MPO Launches Database of Transportation Services Available to the Elderly and People with Disabilities

Seniors and people with disabilities looking for transportation options may turn to a new database made available by the Boston Region MPO that catalogs transportation service providers in the Boston region’s 101 municipalities. The Senior Transportation Services Database lists services provided by councils on aging, regional transit authorities, elder affairs offices, and other non-profit and private organizations.

The database is searchable by city or town and provides data about each service provider, including contact information, amount of notice required for reservations, hours of operation, fees, and age restrictions for using the service. It also cites information about the types of trips served (such as for medical appointments or grocery shopping, for example), destinations, and wheelchair accessibility.

The database is available on the MPO’s website.
