Transportation is a critical part of living independently. For a moderate fee, Alterman/JETS provides transportation for both seniors and adults with disabilities to and from work, doctor or other appointments, social outings, shopping or other destinations. Service is offered Monday through Friday in parts of Fulton, DeKalb, and Cobb counties.
Alterman/JETS has two full-time drivers for weekdays and two part-time drivers for night and weekend group trips. We do provide service for people in a wheelchair. Priority is given to clients of agency programs.
Clients must be 60 years or older or have a disability and they must live in our service area.
JF&CS and LyftTo expand transportation options for seniors in the Atlanta area, JF&CS is collaborating with Lyft to schedule rides for clients, up to one week in advance.
You do not need the Lyft app for this service.
The program is available to any JF&CS client in the Aviv Older Adult or Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities programs where JETS is already booked or unavailable. JF&CS will schedule pickups providing security and peace of mind - clients will know in advance who is picking them up and where, and do not have to provide credit card information through their phones.
This program is available thanks to Financial Support from the Atlanta Regional Commission's New Freedom Grants.
