Ride-On ends senior shuttle

comment

Ride-On has been providing door-to-door rides for seniors for the last 13 years for $3 a ride. Last July, SLOCOG redirected the $250,000 funding for Ride-On's senior shuttle to fund its own Senior Go! service. For the past 10 months, we have funded our senior shuttle without any SLOCOG funding, but we cannot afford to continue the service.

We wanted to thank all of our senior riders for being a part of the Ride-On family. You can use SLOCOG's Senior Go! service operated by Ventura Transit Services by calling (805) 473-3333. We hope you continue to get out into your community.
