Friends for Downers Grove Township Seniors Help Make Dial-A-Ride more Affordable
Nov 18, 2016 5:08 PM -
If you think about all of the things that you need to do on a daily basis, so much of what is on our list requires us to get somewhere. Whether it's driving the kids to school, getting to the grocery store, or picking up a prescription from the pharmacy, we all have places to go. For us here in Downers Grove Township and DuPage County, that means we get into our car and drive. But, what would you do if you couldn't drive? For some of the older residents in our communities, they are no longer able to drive. That is why Friends for Downers Grove Township Senior Citizens was pleased to help make transportation a bit more affordable for those residents within the Township. The Downers Grove Township Board received a check for $5,000.00 from Friends for Downers Grove Township Senior Citizens at their November 17, 2016 board meeting. This will allow the Township to reduce the Dial-A-Ride fare from $4.00 to $3.00 for a one-way ride.
