Sanford Center for Aging:

At the Sanford Center, we recognize that transportation is an issue for many older adults. Getting to doctor's appointments, events, classes and activities or even grocery shopping become a hassle when you don't have the ability to drive yourself around town. Our Volunteer Transportation Program was created to provide an alternative ride option for older adults.

RTA: Washoe Senior Ride/Taxi Card:

Washoe Senior Ride (WSR) is a subsidized taxi program of the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) and is funded by the ¼% of Washoe County sales tax that is allocated for public transportation. WSR provides alternative, reliable and affordable transportation to Washoe County residents who are 60 years and older, RTC ACCESS client (any age) and Washoe County Veterans (any age).

Each month WSR participants may purchase up to $60 worth of taxi fares for just $15.  Participants are issued a RTC WSR CardONE reloadable card, which can be used to pay any part of a taxi fare. The WSR CardONE card cannot be used to tip the driver. This program and the subsidy are subject to available funding and may be changed or terminated by the RTC.
