Senior Shared-Ride Program
Our senior program provides transportation to residents of Westmoreland County who are 65 or older. The Pennsylvania State Lottery provides funding for this program.
Trips can be taken for any purpose with this program, which allows older adults to travel safely no matter the occasion. Whether it be a trip to the doctor, the grocery store, or even the hair salon, riders can confidently get to their destination at a more affordable rate than other alternatives. We aim to aid older adults in remaining active and independent.
AAA Priority Transportation
When older adults 65+ register with the Westmoreland County Area Agency on Aging (AAA) for their Priority Transportation Program, they can receive additional savings when traveling to certain destinations. An additional 10% can be saved when traveling to:
- Medical appointments
- Senior Centers
- Senior Center based shopping
- AAA Adult Day Care
- AAA Vision Center
