Special transportation expansion for Maplewood Seniors in August

As a special pilot program beginning August 1, Maplewood Senior Citizens can ride the evening Commuter Jitney for free by showing their Classic Card. Card holders can take the jitney from one of its usual stops to the train station during the evening runs, which begin at approximately 5:30 pm and end with the last run leaving the train station at 8:47 pm. The jitney will drop off and pick up seniors at the train station, where they can cross to the Village shops and restaurants via the stairs or the more easily accessible tunnel at the south end of the station.

For an application for the Classic Card which gives residents over 65 discounts in dozens of local businesses and restaurants, go to the Recreation Department at Town Hall or to www.SOMATwotownsforallages.org to download an application.
