A temporary fully subsidized taxi service for eligible Sudbury residents!
At the end of August 2020, the Town of Sudbury, through its Transportation Committee, was awarded a grant from the Urgent Taxicab, Livery, and Hackney Transportation Partnership Grant Program sponsored by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and MassDevelopment. The Town is thrilled to have this Taxi Rides Program funded as it will fully subsidize taxi transportation for approximately six (6) months for vulnerable populations (such as older residents, veterans, persons with disabilities, medical staff, first responders, etc.) for trips to work, medical appointments, grocery shopping, or other trips at no cost to qualified participants. The Town has engaged two taxi businesses to provide this service: Tommy’s Taxi in Framingham for sedan transportation, and JFK Transportation in Natick for sedan transportation and wheelchair accessible van (WAV) service.
The Town is now conducting registration for the Taxi Rides Program through the Senior Center. Dispatching services will be handled through the Planning and Community Development Department.
Taxi rides will be provided starting on Monday, September 21, 2020 and you can start scheduling rides on Monday, September 14, 2020.
This program will run through approximately February of 2021. Once you register for the program and are confirmed to be an eligible participant, you will be provided information on how to schedule a ride.
Alternatively, you can also contact Ana Cristina Oliveira at the Senior Center at 978-443-3055 or OliveiraA@sudbury.ma.us to register for the program.
