Transportation: Helping People Stay Independent

 The Senior Center bus is available to Woodbury residents age 60 & better, and to adult disabled residents. The  lift-equipped bus  helps riders stay independent by getting people to shopping, errands and  appointments. The bus also takes riders from home to the Center and  back again. The bus stays in Woodbury on Tuesday, Wednesday and  Thursday, and travels to surrounding towns for riders' convenience on  Monday and Friday. Social trips are planned on a monthly basis as well.  These are often held on weekends or evenings. See the calendar for the current schedule.

We also keep a list of other transportation options in our area, including FISH (Volunteer transportation to medical  appointments), Uber, drivers-for-hire, etc.
