The Older Adult Transportation Coalition exists to ensure that there are adequate options for both on-island enrichment and essential (medical) transportation needs for older adults, as well as off-island medical transport.
Sponsored by Healthy Aging MV, the MV Commission, and the Martha’s Vineyard Community Foundation, a number of essential organizations are working together to meet this goal and increased need.
GoGoGrandparent Pilot Program
The Older Adult Transportation Coalition is sponsoring the GoGoGrandparent Pilot Program. This program provides both scheduled and on demand car rides for essential and enrichment activities for Older Adults. This pilot program began in July 2021, and is still accepting participants. All costs are covered due to a grant received from the Martha’s Vineyard Community Foundation.
