Seniors and disabled adults who don’t drive and need transportation may use the Sr. Center van to go grocery shopping, personal shopping or get to the bank, hair salon, barber or other local non-medical destinations.
The current van schedule is:
Monday through Thursday
9:00 am - 2:00 pm (Times and dates subject to availability of the driver.)
The cost for most roundtrips is $3.00. Please call to schedule an appointment at least forty-eight (48) hours before your appointment.
If you would like to use the Hopedale Sr. Center van you must register as a van rider by calling the Sr. Center at (508)634-2208. The van will come directly to your home and pick you up!
Please remember that we have a separate van service for medical appointments and pre-scription pick-ups. Call the Sr. Center directly at (508)634-2208 for rides to your medical appointments.
All van riders will be required to:
• Answer screening questions
• Have temperature taken
• Wear a mask
• Use hand-sanitizer before taking a seat
The van’s high-contact surfaces will be wiped-down with sanitizing cloths between trips. There is a two (2) person maximum on each trip. Please let us know if you have particular questions or concerns. We can assist with your van rider registration.
The van is available through a partnership between the town of Hopedale and The MetroWest Regional Transit Authority. The service offers Hopedale residents a wonderful opportunity for expanded transportation services. Spread the word.
