Mayor Peter Cantu
641 Plainsboro Road
Plainsboro , NJ 08536
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Mayor Peter Cantu announced a new transportation service available to Plainsboro senior citizens during his address at the May 4th Older Americans Month luncheon. The new service, called RideProvide, began on May 7th and is made available through the efforts of the Greater Mercer Transportation Management Association. For the last five years, RideProvide has been providing service only to residents of Mercer County, but with the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro opening on May 22nd, the decision was made to expand the service area to all of Plainsboro Township.
Mayor Cantu explained, “The service is available to all seniors 65 years and over and all adult residents that are visually impaired. Fees for rides are deducted from the rider’s transportation account, but are free to residents traveling to any Princeton HealthCare facility in Plainsboro or Mercer County.” The Mayor added, “We are very pleased to have this added service available to our senior population as well as those that may have issues with their sight.” The Mayor offered his gratitude to the Greater Mercer TMA for expanding their service area to all of Plainsboro Township.
