MassRIDES is a service of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) which provides information about travel options for commuters, employers, families and schools. Tools on the site allow users to calculate their typical commuter costs, or plan a trip involving bicycling, walking, public transportation, and carpooling.
The Wellesley Council on Aging (COA) has prepared a summary of transportation options for seniors. Specific services offered through the COA include the Council on Aging Bus (Monday through Friday service to local health care facilities, grocery stores, and shopping malls) and a Volunteer Drivers Program.
