Getting where you need to go has never been “EZ”er, thanks to Ryde4Life.
Getting where you need to go has never been “EZ”er, thanks to Ryde4Life. The ride service, created by Newark-based EZ Ride, has been around for more than a year and provides affordable transportation for older adults. First used for running errands and getting to doctors’ appointments, the service is now so popular its weekday hours have been extended to 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and a Saturday service from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. is now available.
Ryde4Life helps senior citizens stay social and active without needing a car, and is easy to join by registering at ryde4life.org. It provides low-cost rides through popular ride-sharing apps (at least $1 off of Uber or Lyft charges), but no worries if you don’t have a smartphone. All you need to do is call 866.208.1307 and have your credit card ready. Ryde4Life will take care of the rest.
