Hi everyone,

I know that a car is a necessity for people living in South Jersey. So PLEASE don't respond just to tell me that.

My question is this: does anyone know of van service, shuttle service, recreational carpooling, etc. in the Burlington Township area?

My friend is in Burlington Township and her 60-something mother is in a neighboring town. While her mom can get someone to take her to get groceries and what not, she is basically at the mercy of her grown children who all work in NYC and have busy lives. I was hoping to suggest something so that her mother can do more recreationally. She has a knee injury that keeps her from driving. Even a local church that has van service on Sundays would be helpful. I thought surely there must be others in similar situations.

Thank you!

She might want to contact this organization and see if there's a volunteer program that could help her: RETIRED & SENIOR VOLUNTEER PROGRAM OF BURLINGTON COUNTY (RSVP)

Also, she may be eligible for Access Link New Jersey Transit

These are both fantastic!

I think she could meet the requirements for Access Link and the RSVP looks like they have something to which she can contribute. I really appreciate your help

Lucy, I don't have a car and I've managed well.
The only difference is I don't live in Burlington County. If you ever move to areas closer to Philly, the transportation is pretty good. Between NJ transit and PATCO, I've managed pretty well!
