A Medicare card is sufficient proof of disability for persons under the age of 65. If you under the age of 65 and do not have a Medicare card, a doctor or authorized agency must sign the application, verifying your disability. Once this is done, return the application to our office either by mail or in person, and we will issue a Reduced Fare Transit ID Card. Seniors (65 or older) are eligible for a Senior Card which entitles them to free rides on any fixed route buses.
