Bergen County is teaming up with EZ Ride to help get seniors, age 60 and over, rides to COVID-19 vaccination appointments.
The rides will be arranged through companies such as Lyft and Uber, under a program known as Ryde4Life, which is part of the EZ Ride network.
The program will be coordinated through the Bergen County Division of Community Transportation and the Division of Senior Services.
To schedule a ride, seniors can call 201-368-5955.
Seniors must have a working cellphone with them during the transportation service and must apply for the ride 24 hours in advance of their appointment.
The senior will be asked to call EZ Ride at a designated number to request transportation when approved for a ride. Seniors can have a family member or friend accompany them on the ride.
