We are a new service provider offering transportation services to senior citizens in Scottsdale that are enrolled in the City’s “Cab Connection” Voucher Program. These individuals can now schedule rides to and from the Meals on Wheels program, dialysis, and medical appointments. Passengers in need of a ride can use their respective pink vouchers when booking travel to and from senior centers.
When asked how he felt about what this partnership and program will mean to STARS and the people it will help to serve, STARS’ Facilities & Mobility Innovation Manager Justin MacGregor exclaimed “This is a great opportunity for STARS to help out the seniors in our community with their transportation needs” and that “We are ready and willing to assist whenever the need arises.”
The transportation department is booking rides from eligible passengers from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm Monday through Friday with 2:00 pm being the time to be picked up. Calls will be answered to take reservations at 480-237-6609 from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm and we are asking for riders to call at least 2 hours in advance, best the day before, to schedule pick-up times.
