The Borough of Closter is embarking on a Pilot Program with the Senior Van Service that is operated by the Boroughs of Harrington Park and Haworth. The Closter Pilot Program will offer Closter residents, who are non-driving seniors with transportation assistance to medical appointments.
To participate in this Pilot Program, persons must be Closter senior residents who are: non-drivers (or temporarily unable to drive), mobile to walk to the vehicle and depart the vehicle unassisted, and who are flexible in pick-up, drop-off times for medical appointments.
The senior van service will operate Monday through Friday and will require a reservation for the appointment is made 48 hours in advance.
The first six or eight residents who contact the Borough and who meet the general guidelines of the Senior Transportation Pilot Program will be able to utilize the program. We are hopeful the success of the Transportation Pilot Program will permit us to broaden the range of the service.
If you, or a neighbor or family member, are interested in learning more about the Senior Transportation Pilot Program, please contact Leslie Weatherly at 201-784-0600 ext 304.
