New Senior Mobility Program in Effect July 1
Made possible in part by the generous support of the Orange County Transportation Authority and Orange County’s Measure M2 (OC Go) half-cent sales tax, the Senior Mobility Program promotes mobility through affordable, older adult-oriented transportation services. The program subsidizes the cost of taxi travel for Laguna Woods residents who are at least 60 years of age.
Laguna Woods has simplified the program; riders no longer need to purchase vouchers. Instead, residents simply pay the California Yellow Cab driver directly based on reduced regular fares for all trips starting or ending in Laguna Woods:
- $0 to or from Laguna Woods City Hall/Public Library
- $0 to or from Irvine Station (access to Amtrak, Metrolink and OCTA buses)
- $5 for trips up to 10 miles within Orange County (each way)
- $10 for trips over 10 miles within Orange County (each way)
- $15 to or from VA Long Beach
- $25 to or from John Wayne Airport
There is no enrollment fee, up to two guests ride free when picked up with an enrolled resident and wheelchair-accessible taxis are available. Qualified residents who enroll in the program will be issued a new ID card with an assigned number required when scheduling rides. Enrollment is valid for fiscal years 2023/2024 through 2024/2025.
