The Senior Center has three handicapped accessible vans that offer daily “curb to curb” service from your home to the senior center. “Curb to curb” service is for independent passengers. Mobility aids such as walkers are encouraged, and drivers will safely store and retrieve them. Passengers must meet the Senior Center Standards of Independence, or be accompanied by a capable assistant.

Please note we do not offer van transportation for medical appointments, shopping, etc. If you require those services please inquire about our Senior Discount Taxi Program, detailed below.

Any Woburn Senior aged 60+ is welcome to join the program.

The City of Woburn and the Council on Aging have contracted flat rates for travel in and around Woburn.

For a yearly registration fee of $5, participants are given an ID card entitling them to these flat rates. The current rate contracted for rides in Woburn is $8.00 for a one-way trip.

Seniors wishing to purchase discounted tickets must provide proof of income (current Federal low-income guidelines are $48,800 for an individual, $55,800 for a married couple) Discounted tickets are $3 for a one-way trip. The City and EEOA pay the additional $5.00. Up to 20 vouchers per month may be purchased at the $3 rate. Unlimited additional vouchers may be purchased for the regular $8.00 rate. Voucher rides outside of the city are for medical reasons only, although members always receive 20% off of Checker Cab’s regular fares when traveling to locations not listed on rate sheets.

Please note the Taxi Program DOES NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS. Cash or checks made payable to “WCOA”, are the only accepted payments.
