Transportation

All Aboard!

Transportation at the Agawam COA

Overview

The Agawam Council on Aging - Senior Center is proud to announce that beginning July 1, 2018 we expanded the Transportation Program, now entitled "All Aboard!", to include Mondays; and we are operating pickups from 8:45 a.m. - 2:45 p.m.

If you are a senior, or living with a disability; and you reside in Agawam, you are eligible to receive these services. 

Priority rides include those to medical appointments, senior activities, and employment or volunteer opportunities. Non-priority rides are rides for any other purpose. Currently many non-priority trips include shopping centers and beauty salons. 

A priority ride can be scheduled at any time as long as 48 hours minimum notice is provided. However, standing rides (regular and re-occurring rides) must be confirmed on a monthly basis, beginning on the 15th of the month prior. 

Non-priority rides can be scheduled as early as the 15th of the  month prior. Again a minimum of 48 hours notice is required when requesting rides.

It is recommended that Medical appointments are scheduled as soon as the appointment is booked to assure space and availability.

First time Riders

Registration with the Agawam Council on Aging will be required at the time of booking your first ride. If you are a member of the Agawam Senior Center, no registration will be necessary. 

Group Outings

In an attempt to better coordinate rides in an efficient way, we have created "Group Outings". These simply are pre-scheduled opportunities to bring larger groups of people to various destinations that have been requested by numerous individuals.

Whenever possible we will try to schedule these outings on days and times that are both convenient for the group, and offer other benefits, such as senior discounts. The table below high lights some of our group outings; we are constantly trying to add to these opportunities, so please check with the staff for the most recent listing. 

When you schedule to go to one of these locations on the days listed below you will get 50% off the regular rate ($1 in town each way, $2 out of town each way)
