Transportation and Escort Services Guide 2012
In response to Boston’s growing senior population and the need for transportation options, FriendshipWorks published this Transportation & Escort Services Guide in 2012 to be a resource for practitioners, older adults, and their families. This guide is specifically for understanding the transportation resources available for the elderly and persons with disabilities living in Greater Boston, Brookline, Cambridge and Newton.
FriendshipWorks is committed to providing quality programs. To achieve this level of quality and to ensure it remains as we grow, the organization takes a regular look what we are doing right and where we can improve. FriendshipWorks has ongoing evaluation efforts in order to collect information that will guide our decision-making and advance our programs. We’re in the process of rolling out program reports and fact sheets summarizing these findings. Check out what we have so far using the links below.
