Active Adult Transportation

About 600,000 older adults stop driving each year, according to the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging.  That can make it harder for aging or ill loved ones to make doctor’s appointments, shop for necessities, visit family or attend social events.  The worksheet below provides all the transportation options each Middlesex County municipality provides to its active adult communities.

To see what is available in your community, find your community on the list (alphabetical order) and click on the green + button.  The municipality contact info, services provided, website will be listed.
