Explore free senior transportation services in Pawtucket offered by the Leon A. Mathieu Senior Center

The Leon A. Mathieu Senior Center offers free transportation services to Pawtucket residents ages 55 and older on the City’s two Senior Shuttles. This service is available to those who do not have a means of transportation to ensure isolation does not occur and that individuals can remain active in the community.

The Senior Center schedules trips to a variety of locations including grocery stores, pharmacies, banks, and to programs and activities offered at the Senior Center. In addition to these core services, weekly and monthly trips are offered to department stores, area restaurants as part of the lunch club, and statewide cultural and recreational attractions.

To schedule a ride, contact the Senior Transportation phone line, 401-725-8220, or call the Senior Center’s main number 401-728-7582.
