Transportation for Seniors
It can be difficult to figure out how your loved one is going to get around when they have lost the ability to drive. There are many transportation resources available for your loved one in Utah.
Transportation programs can be fee-based, discounted or free depending on your age, income or if you are disabled. Transportation can be provided by the government entities such as local city transit authorities, for-profit and non-profit organizations providing small regional bus or van services, or by volunteers serving the community through non-profit organizations.
Utah Reduced Fare
The Utah Transit Authority offers discounts for senior citizens. The two types of discounts they offer are a reduced one-way fare for $1.10 (normally $2.25) or a reduced fare monthly pass for $37.50 (normally $75.00).

Private Transportation Providers
If your loved one would prefer to use private transportation rather than public transportation, you may want to consider hiring a private senior caregiver to help.
