If you use Paratransit, it will get you where you need to go. If you are a regular Madison Metro Transit rider, you could use the bus to get to or close to many businesses and services in Monona (including the Senior Center); it depends on where you are going.
Other service providers who already provide service to Monona, including Dane County’s Group Access Service (GAS), RSVP, and the Transit Solutions Activity Bus (also offered by Dane County), will continue to be available for Monona. In other words, there are other options available if you need to get somewhere directly that isn’t covered by Madison Metro. You do not have to sit on a regular bus for an hour to get you where you need to go locally. More detail on what each of these alternative providers offer can be found at: http://mymonona.com/292/Monona-Lift-Bus-Service-for-Seniors.
One service Monona currently offers, through a Dane County grant, coordinated through the Senior Center, may continue - free trips to East Towne Mall on the first Tuesday of the month and to Woodman’s East the second Tuesday of the month. If the demand is there, Monona sees no reason why Dane County wouldn’t continue to fund it.
