Transportation:

We are pleased to announce that we have received two grants to provide transportation via taxicab. These grants, awarded to the COA from Metropolitan Area Planning Council and BayPath Elder Services, Inc allow us to provide rides to medical appointments outside of the MetroWest area, including Boston, Waltham, Burlington, Fox borough and Worcester.  Partnering with us is JFK Transportation in Natick, who will be providing the cab service.

The number of rides we will be able to provide is limited. If you are a Natick resident, aged 60 and over, please call the Center at 508-647-6540 at least 3 business days in advance of your appointment. Please be aware that strict guidelines for sanitizing and mask-wearing by both passengers and drivers must be followed.

These programs have been made possible in part by funding from the CARES ACT Title IIB as granted by BayPath Elder Services, Inc.
