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.
