Good News August 2015
The City of Olathe, Kansas started many years ago a public/private partnership with local taxis to provide rides to persons age 65 or older at a discount. The City of Shawnee, Kansas has duplicated that model and is on target to exceed 5,500 one-way rides in 2015. The City of Lenexa, Kansas will launch its model in January, 2016. The Kansas City Area Transit Authority will launch a pilot in late 2015 or early 2016 to provide the ‘taxi’ approach to several counties. All provide 24/7 access to residents 65 and older or living with a disability. Congratulations you are improving how we live and age!
