Senior Transportation

Mobility and accessibility are essential for independent living and transportation is the link that allows access to needed services and activities.  The ability to remain engaged with society is a critical factor in the well being of active older adults.

By providing accessible transportation, seniors are provided an opportunity to be active and safe, which not only enriches their quality of life, but also improves health and increases longevity.

Transportation services are available for Broward County Senior Citizens. Door to door transportation services are provided to our Senior Center members upon availability. For additional information, contact the appropriate senior center.
