The freedom for us Pasadenans to just go out and soak up the beautiful sights of Southern California, is a luxury that people all over the world pay top dollar for.
By Jason Hardin
However, as we get older in age and our mobility becomes more limited, we may begin to find ourselves missing out on much of this beauty. For this reason, Metro has created the “On The Move Riders Club”.
The On The Move Riders Club are groups of seniors throughout the greater Los Angeles area that are bringing fun and independence back to the lives of many that may feel unable or unwilling to get around. The club basically takes the guesswork, fear, and loneliness out of going Metro. Connecting new riders with seasoned vets, organizing fun group trips, and even arranging one-on-one outings to run personal errands, are just some of the ways they are empowering senior citizens and helping them get their groove back.
Earlier this fall, Metro Program Coordinator, Lilly Ortiz, gave an informative presentation to the Pasadena Senior Commission and had great things to say about the program. Fortunately for anyone interested, there are two clubs located right here in Pasadena, one club in South Pasadena, and one in Altadena. They are free to join and welcome riders from their mid-50s and up.
