Newton’s new transportation service for seniors, Newton in Motion or NewMo, launched on Monday. According to Jenna Fisher at the Patch:
“The service is part shuttle, part uber, and while it won’t take a rider just anywhere in the city – there’s a list of spots folks can get to using the service online – the goal is to get people to and from the senior center, villages, medical appointments and to specified destinations, primarily in Newton without hassle.”
It is expected that NewMo will be significantly more reliable than the city’s previous voucher program with Veteran’s Taxi. Via Transportation, based in New York, is providing the new service.
