"The subsidized Senior Taxi Cab Program started on Saturday March 1, 2003. We have contracted American Taxi to provide this service and it gives our seniors and disabled residents the independent ability to go to the doctor or shopping."

 

March 1st — The Board of Trustees and I are happy to announce a new service that will benefit our Senior Citizens who are 60 years old and over and our Hillside residents that are disabled/handicapped.

The subsidized Senior Taxi Cab Program started on Saturday March 1, 2003. We have contracted American Taxi to provide this service and it gives our seniors and disabled residents the independent ability to go to the doctor or shopping.

To take advantage of this program, you must live within the corporate limits of Hillside. With coupons provided by the Village, you will be able to travel to your destination and home by paying the entire fare, including tip for the driver, with the coupons or paying the fare by coupons and using cash for the driver's tip. The choice is up to you.

A book with $10.00 worth of coupons may be purchased for $5.00. The Village pays 50 percent and the resident pays 50 percent of the cost. The book is made up of eight (8) $1.00 coupons and four fifty-cent ($.50) coupons. To be eligible for this program, you must register in person at the Village Hall. Proof of eligibility is required before a picture ID and coupon book will be issued. Proof of age such as a Driver's License, State ID Card, Birth Certificate, etc. is also required.

Each situation will be reviewed individually. If you feel your situation merits the use of the Taxi Cab Program on a temporary basis, please contact the Village Hall at 449-6450.

We are excited to offer this new program to a very vital part of our community, our seniors and our residents with disabilities. Of course, updated information will be provided in future issues of the "Hillside Happenings" and "The Hillsider".
