Ride Service for Seniors
Arapahoe County partners with Seniors’ Resource Center for ride service
Arapahoe County has partnered with Seniors’ Resource Center to provide senior transportation services for residents 60 years and older. First Ride no longer provides this service to Arapahoe County.
Seniors’ Resource Center provides free transportation services to eligible seniors to support their independence by providing transportation to medical/dental appointments, grocery stores and to attend congregate noon meals, community-based care programs and food banks.
Vehicles are clearly marked with the Seniors’ Resource Center logo to help residents know when their ride has arrived. More than 400 individuals use Arapahoe County’s Senior Transportation Services, which provides about 11,000 trips each year.
The service is funded by Older Americans Act, State Funding for Seniors and Arapahoe County tax dollars. There is no fee for rides, however, donations are appreciated and encouraged to help serve more residents.
First Ride customers are encouraged to call SRC for their transportation services. To make a trip reservation, call 303-235-6972 between 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and at least three business days in advance of when the ride is needed. When you call, please provide your name, pick-up address, drop-off address, time of appointment and emergency contact phone number.
For more information, please contact SRC at 303-235-6972.
