Senior Transportation Program
The Orange Senior Center offers a Senior Transportation Program which subsidizes the cost of taxi travel for Orange residents who are at least 60 years of age.

The Senior Transportation Program promotes lifelong mobility through a donation based and senior-oriented transportation service. If you are a senior in need of a ride to a medical appointment, pharmacy, grocery store, or the Orange Senior Center, help may be available to you.
