Senior Transportation Testimonial

CAP has been operating transportation services for seniors for more than 30 years. It's a vital service that helps empowers people age 60 and over to stay in their homes and remain self-sufficient. We provide regular routes to various town with a door-to-door, demand response service, which means our driver picks riders up at their door and helps them on and off the bus. We take them to grocery stores, pharmacies and other stores.

One of our regular riders, Cecelia, is 90 years old and the bus provides her with safe, accesssible transportation every week from her residence in Dover. 

"Now I am 90 years old, use a walker and cane, and it's back to the bus for me," she wrote to CAP. "Some (of us) are totally dependent upon the bus for their weekly groceries, but all are grateful for this transportation provided by CAP. It is necessary and a great convenience."
