GO GO CONCORD (FORMERLY GET AROUND TAXI) SENIOR TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM BY CONCORD COMMISSION ON AGING
It is important for seniors to stay mobile. Mobility can provide seniors with a means to remain engaged in their communities, countering the isolation that often comes with aging.
The Commission On Aging developed this program to supplement other national and count programs available to Concord seniors. For example, AARP Driver courses, County Connection routes, and CC LINK for paratransit services.
This door to door option allows seniors to get transportation service at an affordable rate. Concord residents that are 65+ can purchase an e-Script for $15 that is worth $30 in rides.
