Wave Transit received a government grant to improve transportation services to people over the age of 65 and people with disabilities. Wave Transit is distributing some of these funds to local organizations to help increase these services. Eligible organizations can be non-profit, governmental, or private businesses; the main thing is that they can provide new transportation options. 

Vanessa Lacer, the Mobility Manager at Wave, joined us in the studio to talk about how groups can apply to receive funding through this community grant program. Listen to our interview above for more information. And stay tuned-we'll speak with Lacer in November to find out who the grant recipients are.

If you are a person with a disability, getting around town can be difficult. The same goes for folks who are older and have poor eyesight or other limitations. WAVE Transit currently provides transportation options to help these people who need them. And it's about to get better.
