Transportation Programs: Keeping Arizonans Connected

At FSL, we recognize that transportation can be a huge barrier in access to services for physical, mental and financial wellness. This is why we aim to provide transportation options to and from most of our statewide programming.

In 2024, FSL acquired Northwest Valley Connect, a transportation nonprofit dedicated to improving accessibility.

 

We provide free or low-cost transportation for individuals aged 65+ in the cities of Sun City, Sun City West, El Mirage, Youngtown and portions of Peoria and Surprise. With both paid staff and volunteers, wheelchair accessible vans and volunteers’ vehicles, riders are able to get to vital medical appointments, socialize with friends and break bread at senior centers, grocery shop, get to work, and more.

  • For a small fee, residents of El Mirage are able to have their Lyft rides scheduled and coordinated by NVC. 
  • In addition to Lyft, we provide transportation in NVC accessible vehicles for residents who are disabled and cannot utilize the Lyft program for the same low fee of $2.00 each way. 
  • Rider must give 2 days notice to place a ride request

ReCreación Adult Day Health Centers

FSL ReCreación is a place where any adult (age 18+) who is living with a physical, cognitive or developmental disability or medical condition can come pursue a purposeful day in a safe and organized, but fun and judgment-free environment! 

 

Are you a member who needs a ride to the center? FSL’s accessible buses follow routes throughout the surrounding areas of our Glendale and Tempe adult day health locations.
