WESTERLY — On Friday, Aug. 3, a representative from RIPTA will be at the senior center from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. to process RIPTA ID passes for seniors 65 and older, and disabled or handicapped individuals under the age of 65.
In the over-65 category, low-income seniors and those with disabilities may purchase a “No Fare” two-year pass, which will allow them to ride the RIPTA and Flex buses at no additional cost. Other seniors over the age of 65 and disabled individuals under 65 may purchase two-year passes that allow them to ride the RIPTA and Flex buses for half-fare during non-peak hours.
There are forms for low-income individuals, seniors 65 and older, and disabled individuals under the age of 65 that may be filled out the day of the clinic, or may be picked up in advance at the center office.
