FAIRVIEW PARK, Ohio — The Fairview Park Senior Center last week successfully restarted its transportation services — which have been canceled since the spring due to COVID-19 — taking seniors to medical appointments and grocery stores.
“It’s going really well even though it started slow and isn’t as busy as it used to be,” Fairview Park Senior Center Interim Senior Life Director Laura Brondos said. “So far, we’ve had no issues with our one-rider-per-vehicle policy.”
The Fairview Park Senior Center transportation policy requires seniors confirm with their physician that an in-person visit is required versus a telemedicine appointment. Riders, who must wear masks, are required to make an appointment in advance by calling 440-356-4439.
The shopping schedules for vans/cars include going to Marc’s on Monday, Giant Eagle on Tuesday and Aldi on Wednesday. Each requires a $4 round-trip fare.
However, trips outside of the city range from $6 to $12
