Need a Lift
Getting where you need to go has never been “EZ”er, thanks to Ryde4Life. The ride service, created by Wood-Ridge-based EZ Ride, has been around for more than a year and provides affordable transportation to New Jersey’s older adults. First used for running errands and getting to doctor’s appointments, the service is now so popular its weekday hours have been extended to 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday service from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. is now available. Ryde4Life helps senior citizens stay social and active without needing a car, and is easy to join by registering at ryde4life.org. It provides lost-cost rides through popular ride-sharing apps (at least $1 off of Uber or Lyft charges), but no worries if you don’t have a smart phone. All you need to do is call 866.208.1307 and have your credit card ready. Ryde4Life will take care of the rest.
