Articles, activities for boomers & seniors
The Lehigh Valley ranks high on quality of life issues for both young families and seniors, but one gripe persists – transportation. Whether it is public transport, ride sharing programs or even mobile phone apps like Uber, transportation consistently falls well short of demand. Recently, a new option has emerged for families who care for seniors living at home -- PA Transportation Services.
PA Transportation Services was created to transport seniors who attend adult day programs, however it expanded services to those not attending the program. They operate under a Pennsylvania PUC license to transport seniors in Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Lehigh and Northampton Counties. The service is privately owned and generally paid for with personal funds although funding is available through the Department of Human Services / Aging Waiver program.
