Newton Senior Center, 345 Walnut St., Newtonville

For seniors with a smartphone and a credit card, ride-hailing apps like Uber and Lyft can be a flexible, accountable, and reasonably-priced transportation option. These apps are especially useful for those who need transportation outside of Newton, to and from nonmedicaldestinations, or on evenings or weekends when other options are not available. After sharing the latest news on these apps and services, TRIPPS volunteer Jane Gould will answer your questions and talk about ways you can get individual help installing and using these apps on your own smartphone.  Presenter will be Jane Gould, Ph.D.,author of Aging in Suburbia: The Must-Have Conversation about Homes and Driving (2014,Wava Press).
