The bus is available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

So, "How do I do this", you ask:  

  1. Become a Commission on Aging client by contacting us at: 520 W. Front Street, Suite B., Traverse City, MI.  Or, call us at 231-922-4688.
  2. Provide us with proof that you are a resident of Grand Traverse County and aged 60 years or older.
