The Luzerne County Transportation Authority has a Shared Ride Program for residents 65 years and older. It provides a reduced-cost ride by sharing the vehicle with others traveling in the same area at the same time. The ride area is anywhere in Luzerne County, usually Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. This service can be used for anything from doctor’s appointments to shopping to visiting with friends, or whatever else would get you out of the house. The cost is approximately 15% of the standard fare. For more information and an application, call the Luzerne County Transportation Authority Shared Ride Program at 288-8420.
