Stay Independent
with Senior Scrip!

The Senior Scrip program provides alternative, reliable and affordable transportation to Fresno County residents who are 70 years of age and older with transportation by participating taxi companies in Fresno County and through GoGoGrandparent for Lyft-Uber.  Eligible seniors receive a 75% discount on ride fares by purchasing up to $200 worth of senior scrip per month, in their choice of paper scrip for use with taxi rides, or in electronic credit for use with Lyft/Uber rides.

Senior Scrip can be used as needed at any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Each month, seniors will have a choice to purchase one of the following forms of scrip:

Paper scrip that can be used to pay for rides with taxi cabs/taxi service providers
Electronic scrip credit to pay for Lyft-Uber rides.

Eligible seniors can purchase in increments of $5 which buys them $20 worth of scrip (up to a maximum of $200 of scrip value per month at a total cost of $50).  That is a 75% discount!

Fresno COG and a company called GoGoGrandparent have formed a partnership to help our Senior Scrip Program participants schedule rides with Lyft and Uber drivers by calling only one telephone number from a home telephone or cell phone. No need to own or use a smartphone, GoGoGrandparent will schedule the ride for you!
