Seniors who need transportation to medical appointments within the county can get a voucher for up to $6 each way. The county’s Office for the Aging is sponsoring the program and is contracting with the Rockland Taxi Company to provide the service.
Vouchers can be picked up at the office, in Building B of the Dr. Robert L. Yeager Health Complex in Ramapo (everyone calls it Pomona because of the ZIP, but it’s not within the village’s boundaries), betwee 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. They also can be mailed to residents homes.
Those receiving the vouchers must be at least 60 and must provide proof of residency.
The New York State Office for the Aging provided a $13,352 grant to the county for the program, which is similar to one in Suffern and at the Montebello Commons complex. Seniors living in those areas are asked to keep using those programs.
