Transportation options and how to travel independently on New Jersey Transit buses and trains will be discussed at a “New Jersey Transit 101” program scheduled for October 6 at SAGE Eldercare in Summit.

“Transportation is a vital part of independent living, which is at the core of SAGE Eldercare’s mission. We are pleased to offer this program to the community,” said SAGE Executive Director Angela Sullivan.

The free program will be held on Thursday, October 6 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. at SAGE Eldercare, 290 Broad Street, Summit, NJ. To register or for more information, please call (980) 598-5548 or email education@sageeldercare.org.
