There are two components to our shuttle program:
Merrill Gardens, Park Lane, and Forest Hill Manor will be running a shuttle for their residents throughout the Carmel Jewish Film Festival. You can sign up with the Activity Director. When the shuttle is not running, CJFF will pay for a cab for the residents of these three senior facilities (see options 2 and 3 below).
We realize that some of our members no longer drive or do not drive after dark. You may request a cab, Uber or Lyft. If you do not know how to use an APP on your phone, you can call Go-Go Grandparent at 1-855-464-6872 or 1-855-GOGO-USA and they will arrange transportation for you. You will need to set up an account. Keep your receipts, and CJFF will reimburse you at the end of the festival. This opportunity is for CBI members and festival Sponsors. Of course, you may invite non-members to ride with you.
We would also like to encourage seniors to take advantage of the Monterey-Salinas Transportation taxi program. You must be 65+ and appear in person with ID the first time only. You will receive 10 taxi vouchers per month worth up to $17 each way. You pay a $3.00 co-pay per use. Unused vouchers can carry over to future months. For Carmel/CV, PB, call 624-1588. For PG, call 648-3100. For Marina, call 884-1253, For Seaside, call 899-6800. For Monterey, call 1-888-678-2871).
This is a pilot program being funded by a small grant. If it is successful, we will expand the service to other senior living facilities next year. If you have questions, contact Cele Passin at 818-648-5334.
