Moraine Township Paratransit Program Receives Grant from Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park
Daily transportation to the doctor, grocery store, and work remains available and affordable for Moraine Township senior and disabled residents thanks to the continued generous support of the Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park.

"The generous support of the Healthcare Foundation has made it possible for us to keep our ride cost fixed for years and help Township seniors living on a fixed income get to medical appointments and quality-of-life errands such as grocery stores and beauty salons," reported Moraine Township Supervisor Anne Flanigan Bassi.

The Township operates two vans daily from 8:30am to 4:00pm to take residents door-to-door up to 15 miles from the Township border.

"Medical trips are a priority, including taking residents to dialysis appointments, post-surgery or post-injury rehab. Township seniors and disabled residents are also invited to use our vans for quality-of-life trips, enabling our seniors to age in place and continue to make meaningful contributions to our community, and making it possible for disabled residents to work or volunteer," commented Trustee Amy Zisook, Township Transportation Liaison.

Because of the Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park's support, the Township can keep fares affordable for income-qualified residents, while caregivers ride free. Revenues from user fees offset less than 10% of program costs. Click to read more.
