Byram Township Senior Citizen Transportation Update

Posted: November 03, 2020

The Byram Township senior bus is available for Senior Club members who are in need of transportation on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month to attend the Senior Club meeting. 

The senior bus is also available on the alternate Thursdays to any group of seniors who are in need of transportation for local shopping or dining at local restaurants.

The hours of operation are 10:30am-3:30pm, including drop off and pick up.

This is not a dial-a-ride service for individuals, but intended for Byram Township seniors to have a day out with other seniors while

meeting some of their shopping needs.
