Healthy Aging MV and a coalition of 14 Island organizations and agencies serving the needs of seniors will hold an Older Adult Transportation Summit on Sept. 20. The event is the first of its kind on the Island. It will take place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in person at the Martha’s Vineyard Film Center in Vineyard Haven and be available via Zoom.

The summit is intended to inform Island seniors and those who assist them of what transportation services are now available and what is needed to ensure their safety and quality of life. The event coincides with the publication of On the Go, Safe Rides for Older Riders, a directory of transportation options.

People needing transportation to the event, access to the Zoom link or for any other questions should contact Cindy Trish, executive director at Healthy Aging MV at, 508-693-7900 ext. 455.
