tc2016This fall, TRIPPS is offering seniors in Brookline and Newton an exciting challenge: pick a destination, and travel there in a way that is new to you!

The only rule is that you must make your trip without driving yourself. You can take the T, ride a bus, call The RIDE, catch a lift with a friend, walk, bike, hail a taxi, use a ride-hailing app, hire a driver… If you need ideas or any help planning your trip, send us an email or give your friendly neighborhood TRIPPS Transit Advisor a call at 617-730-2644. We are waiting to hear from you and are eager to help you take the Challenge. ...continue reading "Take the “TRIPPS Challenge” this fall!"
