BETS: Brookline Elder Taxi System

Continuing our transportation focus, this month the service we are featuring is Brookline Elder Taxi System. BETS is a taxi discount program that allows income eligible Brookline residents over 62 to buy $50 worth of discounted taxi coupons every month.  Eligibility requirements are that an individual’s maximum annual income cannot exceed $48,000 and a couple’s income cannot exceed $55,800. The program is sponsored by the Council on Aging, CDBG and licensed Brookline Cab companies.  Alice Ebrat, BETS program coordinator, is at the Senior Center every Monday through Wednesday from 12 noon until 4:00 pm to take applications and sell BETS coupon books.  For more information call Alicia at 617-730-2740.
