THIS SHUTTLE PROGRAM IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE
Shuttle bus transportation primarily serving Conejo Valley seniors with medical appointments at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Woodland Hills got underway
February 1st of this year on a two-day-a-week, three round trips-each-day schedule.
The Shuttle also stops at the Warner Transit Center in Woodland Hills.
Senior Concerns is managing the Tuesday and Thursday service under a threeyear
federal grant administered through the Ventura County Transportation
Commission and the City of Thousand Oaks Transportation Department. A ninepassenger,
wheelchair-accessible van has been provided by Roadrunner Shuttle.
“We are very pleased to help provide this service for those for whom auto
transportation is limited or cannot afford the regular round-trip cab fare of some $80
to Woodland Hills,” Toni Hagopian, Senior Concerns Advocate said.
Endorsing the new Shuttle, Roy C. Myers, transportation analyst for the City of
Thousand Oaks, said,”Current demand is great for public transportation, but service
has been inconvenient, expensive and not near direct. We are committed to providing
local senior citizens with safe, affordable and accessible service.”
To date over 300 trips have been made and we expect that the Shuttle will
continue to grow as a welcome addition to the quality-of-life services Senior Concerns
has provided to frail and special-need seniors and their caregiver families in Ventura
and western Los Angeles counties since l975.
Detailed information on the new public service, called the Senior Concerns
Shuttle, is available from Toni Hagopian at Senior Concerns, phone (805) 341-8004.
Senior round-trip passenger fare is $10. Reservations are a must!
