North Olmsted residents give STC Plus a spin

STC Plus, The new evening and weekend Senior Transportation Connection service, booked its first passengers in April. STC Plus, the new evening and weekend Senior Transportation Connection service, booked its first passengers in April. It offers seniors who live in Cuyahoga County new, accessible transportation possibilities at different times and to different places. Executive Director Janice Dzigiel explained that "Our goal is to help people connect to social, recreational and worship opportunities. We encourage people to consider group outings to a movie and dinner, or perhaps a play or shopping.  We look forward to exploring new activities and locations with our passengers."

Our first passengers

Our very first STC Plus passenger had a practical reason for calling. Joanne Holchin was reluctant to reschedule a late afternoon physician appointment. She knew it would not be finished in time, so she arranged for STC Plus to bring her home. "I am looking forward to all the places where I now can go," Joanne said. STC Plus took Linda Bokan and her son Michael to St. Richard's Church on Easter morning. Linda is a long-time rider who enjoyed attending this special day with her son. They've already booked their next outing. Thanks to a federal grant from the National Aging & Disability Transportation Center, STC Plus offers one free trip to encourage seniors and adults with disabilities to try the new service. Individuals can contact STC directly to arrange for a vehicle that meets their mobility needs, operated by a trained driver. Call today to find out how STC Plus can drive your social life.
