Great Barrington’s Ride Service Begins In October
GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Great Barrington's Ride Service begins Oct. 1 for seniors and residents with disabilities
With Southern Berkshire Elderly Transportation ending service as of Oct. 1, the Claire Teague Senior Center will arrange ride services for seniors and disabled residents.
The service is limited to residents of Great Barrington and Housatonic at this time.
Until the town has a new transportation van in place, in November, rides are being organized with R.S.V.P., a volunteer driver program, and other resources.
"Our staff is working diligently with BRTA to have a full-service transportation van in place as soon as possible, but residents can still get rides by giving us a call," Polly Mann Salenovich, senior center director said.
COVID-19 precautions are required for passengers and drivers; all must wear a mask and observe physical distancing.
Residents needing transportation to medical, pharmacy, grocery or other locations are asked to contact the Claire Teague Senior Center, (413) 528-1881 at least 48 hours in advance.
