Rules change for seniors’ transportation program

Print More

A change in state policy could make it harder for senior citizens in the Rutland area to use a transportation program to visit museums. State officials say trips by the group “Elders on the Go” can continue only if they include essential services such as grocery shopping or visits to a senior meal site.

State officials say priorities had to be changed because there were unmet needs in some parts of the state. Under the new rules, 95 percent of all trips in the transportation program must be for essential services such as doctor visits and grocery shopping.
