Under a grant awarded to Chatham Borough, seniors in the Borough of Chatham can get Uber rides for $5.00 for the first 15 miles.
As a senior who can no longer drive, I can appreciate the value of such a program. It provides for much needed on-demand, independent mobility to move around town. It can also be useful to seniors who are concerned about driving after dark or when road conditions are poor. Could elected officials in Parsippany look into a similar program for its seniors?
If any of my fellow seniors think such a program has merit, please let the Parsippany officials know. Remember – strength in numbers.
