11/2/23, Asbury Park, NJ – The City of Asbury Park, through a partnership with non-profit corporation EZ Ride, will be offering the EZ Ryde4Life @ Asbury Park essential ride program to subsidize the cost of transportation for essential trips for senior (age 65+) and income-eligible residents. Rides are provided by EZ Ride in partnership with Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) like Lyft and Uber. The program, which will run until funding is exhausted, is available to Asbury Park residents from 8am to 8pm Monday-Friday and from 8am to 5pm on Saturday.

Through the program, the City of Asbury Park will provide eligible residents with the initial registration fee and the first $15 of each trip taken (up to 6 trips per month) while funds are available. All additional expenses beyond the first $15, and over the maximum of the six (6) trips permitted each month, will be the responsibility of the rider.
Program participants must be an Asbury Park resident and be age 65+ or meet HUD income-eligibility guidelines.
