Passengers can travel anywhere within Veterans's service area, including Logan airport. They will also provide transportation to and from T.F. Green (Providence, RI) or the Manchester (NH) airports for $150 each way, door to door.
|How much does it cost?||Veterans charges a one-way flat rate to and from Logan airport, currently $46 for Newton and $45 for Brookline. (If you prefer to run the meter, the driver will do so upon request when picking up from towns where they are licensed.)
For all other trips you can buy a book of $1 or $5 coupons at a 10% discount. For example, if you bought a book of ten $1 coupons, you would only pay $9 for the entire book of ten coupons.
Cash tips are at the passenger's discretion and are not included in the cost of the coupons. Tipping is recommended. A tip of one or two dollars is fine, although more is always appreciated--especially for longer trips.
|When is this option available?||24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year|
|How far ahead do you need to plan?||Call 617-527-0300 and say that you want to buy senior coupons. Your coupons will be sent to you by mail. Allow at least 3-5 business days for the coupons to arrive.
Although same day reservations are accepted, to ensure the best service at the time of your choice, Veterans advises making your reservations as far in advance as possible.
