The Township of Hanover is proud to debut the Public Transportation Guide for seniors and persons with disabilities! This guide was funded by an Inclusive Healthy Communities Grant from the Division of Disability Services, New Jersey Department of Human Services. At the start of the Township’s grant project, outreach was done to learn how the Township can help to improve mobility and transportation for people within the municipality. Many residents expressed that they did not know what options existed for them regarding public transportation services in town. This guide includes information about and applications for the Township’s Dial-A-Ride service, the Morris Area Paratransit Service (MAPS), NJ Transit Access Link service, and some NJ Transit discounted fare programs.
Mayor Ferramosca had this to say about the guide and Hanover’s Inclusive Healthy Communities project overall: “Mobility is essential to life, many even take it for granted, Hanover is proud to be a recipient of NJ Department of Human Service's IHC grant to help improve mobility for people with disabilities. The entire Township Committee is very supportive of this initiative. We want to make a difference in mobility so that all our residents have access that everything that Hanover has to offer.”
Starting Wednesday, June 1st, the free guides will be made available to the public in the lobby of Town Hall and the Community Center, while supplies last, on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are unable to make it to Town Hall, you can request that one be mailed to your residence by filling out this form or viewing it online here (PDF).
