COAST provides free transportation for riders age 60+, if they are registered COAST clients. Other senior riders must pay the regular ½ fare if they require rides at other times. By offering free transportation to the grocery, shopping, medical appointments and other errands, we are able to help seniors remain independent and self-sufficient. Each weekday, COAST provides transportation to and from the COAST senior centers, with the exception of Bush and Folsom.
