To live boldly you need to move boldly. That’s why the Department of Aging and Community Living (DACL) connects you with a variety of transportation services designed to meet your mobility needs—whatever they may be. Whether it’s transportation to a medical appointment or senior wellness event, reduced fares on public transit, or curb-to-curb transportation with your wheelchair, DACL can connect you to the programs that will help get you where you need to be.
The Senior MedExpress program provides eligible DC residents, age 60+, with a certified medical condition free round-trip transportation to essential medical appointments such as chemotherapy or dialysis, or to health-related public benefits appointments for DDS, Medicaid (DHS ESA sites), or SNAP.
The Seabury Connector provides transportation for group activities, senior wellness centers and special events.
The ConnectorCard Program is a cost-share program that provides qualified older adults, age 60 and over, with a debit card that can be used for ground transportation services to the destination of their choice. The amount of subsidy provided through the card is based on a sliding fee scale.
Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA)
