Is there a Shuttle Service for Seniors?

Yes,

Senior Shuttle Program through the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center

The Senior Shuttle Program provides local transportation for Revere Seniors sixty-years and over. This service provides seniors transportation to meet medical appointment, dental appointments, attend the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center  for lunch and activities, and if available, transporting them to take care of personal needs such as going to the pharmacy, the bank, hair dressing appointments, recreational activities, or shopping. The staff will determine driver’s availability based on a First Call/First Serve/Open time schedule.

Medical appointments, dental visitations, and attending the Senior Center for lunch will be the priority trips available. One coupon each way is required.

On Wednesdays, and depending on the schedule and number of requests, we will offer trips to Walmart in Lynn and Square One Mall in Saugus. These two outside Revere trips require two coupons each way.

Days/Hours of Operation – Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.

(last pick-up or drop off is 3:30 p.m.)

  • You must register in person and purchase a $10.00 coupon book at the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center prior to usage of the shuttle van. Cost is $1.00 per person per destination. Once registered and if a new coupon book is needed, you must notify the office. The driver will provide them to on the van but will only accept $10.00 cash.
  • The driver will not accept cash or credit cards – only the coupon. It is up to you to have enough coupons to pay for your ride. Coupons are the only means of payment for shuttle usage.
