This month the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center announced that beginning July 1, 2023, all seniors who are members of the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center will no longer need to pay for shuttle services. Seniors must be members of the Senior Center and be over the age of 60 to utilize the shuttle.
“Our members are thrilled they no longer have to pay for the shuttle service,” said Director of Elder Affairs Deb Peczka. “Having just one less thing to worry about makes a world of a difference to them, and I’m thankful for Acting Mayor Keefe and CFO Richard Viscay’s support of this change.”
Currently the Senior Center has two vans to transport seniors to and from the Senior Center, to and from doctor and dentist appointments in Revere and to and from Revere food shopping centers. The shuttle service, which is highly utilized by the Senior Center members, has always cost $1.50 per ride, and seniors were required to use a trip book ticket to get a ride. Going forward, this will not be the case.
Operating hours for the senior shuttle are Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Members must call and reserve an appointment one day in advance or more due to booking demands. To utilize these services, seniors must sign a Standards of Independence for the Revere Senior Center Participation form. To learn more about this program and sign up to become a member of the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center, please visit them during business hours at 25 Winthrop Ave. or call them at 781-286-8156.
