Get moving in 2017! Many local seniors simply do not know there are options out there for transportation. Too many Seniors are spending too many hours alone and not being active enough. Socialization is one thing to consider, but more importantly having the ability or power to still go do day to day activities remains crucial to anyone’s lifestyle.
Annapolis, Maryland and the surrounding suburbs are one of the most sought out places to live in the Country. The City has some great public transportation options but most of the rural communities like St. Margarets, Cape st. Claire and other neighborhoods are cut off from the City’s Bus Transportation.
Relationships Are Still Important
You could image Uber or getting a ride from a stranger is not for everyone in the Senior Community. We still like to know who is driving us, and trust them by having a first name relationship with the driver. Customer service being a priority, it’s important to develop that relationship so the driver can offer specialized door to door service.
Passion is just as important as Professionalism
Many taxis and shared riding services offer curb to curb service or discounts based on group trips. Annapolis Flyer is looking for more. We would like to help you with your bags or help you to the door if needed. There are no additional fees for family members or helpers to escort. We are happy to help with getting in and out of the car or SUV. We have plenty of room for groceries or walking devices.
Common reasons to need a professional driving service may be to go the grocery store, or place of worship. Commonly we offer driving services to Doctor appointments or to visit family and friends. Let us not forget about special occasions or entertaining events.
Here is a valuable resource for the Anne Arundel County Department of Aging. This PDF download includes a self-assessment test as well as tips on how to keep your driving skills and reflexes sharp. On page 45 section 5 discusses Transitioning from Driving. It also offers a template to create a Transportation Plan so you can still continue to conduct day to day activites.
With Annapolis Flyer, there are no hidden fees or memberships. Price is determined based on a flat rate per mile and most destinations in Annapolis, MD are very close.
