Free rides being offered to and from Eagle View Adult Center in 2019

Via rides

Eagle View Adult Center (EVAC) and Via Mobility Services have teamed up to offer free rides to and from the adult center in 2019.  


Thanks to the generous support of donors, Via was able to add an additional shuttle this year to provide transportation for people who use the Eagle View facility. Riders are still required to register, make reservations and follow all cancellation rules of the service. 


This yearlong, free shuttle service is estimated to cost around $17,000 and was made possible from Turkey Trot proceeds and fundraisers the Senior Advisory Board holds throughout the year at EVAC such as the annual Spaghetti Luncheon, Craft Fair and donations. All funds raised throughout the year at EVAC  are intended to be used for services and programs for seniors in Brighton. 


In 2018, Via provided more than 4,000 round trips to EVAC. It also provided rides for medical appointments, grocery shopping and other miscellaneous errands that Brighton residents need assistance getting to.  


Via is not just a service for seniors in our community. It is a door-to-door service for anyone needing a ride around Brighton. Call 303-447-2848 or visit www.viacolorado.org for more information about eligibility and service routes.
