Elder Express is a regularly scheduled van service in Squirrel Hill for seniors ages 65 years and older who live in the 15217 zip code area to assist them in getting out for day-to-day activities and to remain active in the community. The stops on the schedule are meant to be useful to older adults who would like to get to the shops, social activities, and educational programs. Participants do need to be enrolled in Access (the county’s shared ride program) to be able to use the service. See the schedule.
Once you are enrolled in Access, each ride is $1.75 one way. The money is deducted from your Access e-purse, which is set up when you enroll in Access. So no cash is needed to ride into town!
