The volunteer transportation programs developed by age-friendly, lifelong community volunteers
This video of Age-Friendly Saco's transportation program shows the impact of being able to count on a ride to a medical appointment. The program launched in 2021 under the guidance of Lifelong Maine AmeriCorps member Linda Verville and UMaine Center on Aging Transportation Fellow, Mary Beth Paquette. This year, rides are being given by Lifelong Maine AmeriCorps Member David Steed.
Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of all programs, services, and activities developed in Transportation but is a sampling of approaches adopted by lifelong communities. We update this section regularly to highlight the many strategies implemented in Maine communities.
