Senior Transportation Services

 

 LLM

Lifelong Montclair, in partnership with Essex County, is proud to announce the roll out of our new and improved transportation services. This pilot expands transportation services for Montclair residents age 55+ and residents with disabilities in order to meet the needs of residents who are unable to safely or independently reach their destinations. Rides are available throughout all of Essex County and within a 10-mile radius of the County for a multitude of transportation needs such as medical, recreational, shopping, and beyond!

This has expanded Montclair’s transportation services greatly by not only extending the distance of rides, but by accepting rides for any purpose! Every rider can seek transportation services through one central phone number by calling EZRide at 201-939-4242 ext 4.

If you are a rider who requires ADA compliant transportation services, EZRide will now be able to connect you with Essex County Community Transportation Services, where you can schedule an accommodating ride 48-hours in advance.
