Ryde4Life

What would you do with $6600?  In November, Ann Lippel, Chair of Montclair’s Senior Citizens Advisory Committee (SCAC), and Katie York, Montclair’s Director of Senior Services/Lifelong Montclair, received Community Impact Awards from the Partners for Health Foundation.  They decided to pool their award money and use it to improve transportation options for Montclair’s older residents. Specifically, the money will go to partner with the Ryde4Life program to offset Seniors in Taxis (S.I.T.) program that ended in December, 2018.

Effective immediately, Montclair residents age 55+ will be able to access a credit for Uber/Lyft rides through EZ Ride’s Ryde4Life program.  Ryde4Life facilitates Uber/Lyft rides – to participate you just need a cell phone (doesn’t have to be a smartphone) and a credit or debit card.  Sign up for an account by calling 201-939-4242, ext. 4 or visiting www.ryde4life.org.  Once you have an account, you can call to get a ride right away – evening and weekend hours are available.  And thanks to the Community Impact Awards funding, the first 100 Montclair residents 55+ who sign up will get a $50 credit: $15 to cover the annual fee and $35 in ride credits.   

Guide to Public Transportation

The New Jersey Travel Independence Program at the Rutgers Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy developed a Lifelong Montclair Guide to Public Transportation. The guide helps Montclair's senior citizens understand available transportation resources.  It has since been updated by the Township.  

For more information, contact Katie York at 973-509-4967.  To request a hard copy of the Lifelong Montclair Guide to Public Transportation, please call 973-509-4970.
