The Cortland County Area Agency on Aging has recently announced their purchase of a transit bus to help seniors with transportation to the new Cortland Age Well Center located at 165 Main street, Suit B2 in the Crescent Commons Building in Cortland.
The bus can seat 14 people and is handicap accessible. The Area Agency on Aging is currently exploring possible routes for the bus and is asking for public input on route ideas.
“Transportation is a service the agency is working on following the restructuring of the congregate meal program in 2021. It is important that all older adults have access to a well-balanced meal, socialization, health and wellness programs, application assistance, information and education regardless of where they live in our county.” Deputy Director Carrie Kane said to X101 News.
