Many of our communities’ older adults are unable to access transportation for several reasons. Some can no longer drive safely. Others can no longer afford to maintain car and insurance payments. Sometimes the person is temporarily unable to drive due to surgery or illness. Whatever the reason, losing the ability to drive becomes a barrier to receiving vital services such doctors visits, grocery shopping and medication pickup. Day to day activities normally managed on their own, like going to a doctor or grocery shopping all become impossible. Waukegan Township Park Place Transportation Service offers several programs for Township residents who are 55 and better.
