Tri-Town 55+ is a non-profit, 501c3, community-based organization with representatives from business, non-profit and public agencies who partner together to create, implement and promote age-friendly programs and services for older adults and their families within the three towns. The Coalition began in January 2016 with the help of a grant from the Grotta Fund for Senior Care. The Fund supports the creation of age-friendly communities throughout northern and central New Jersey.
Tri-Town 55+ Coalition launched its first initiative, the “Rides for Seniors” program. The subsidized on-demand, 24-hour car service began in April 2017 for seniors 65 and older in the three towns. To date, the program has over 300 registered riders and has provided 3,000 rides.
