May is National Older Americans Month and this year’s theme is “Age My Way.”
This special month is an opportunity to explore the many ways older adults can remain in and be involved with their communities. Metro’s On the Move Riders Program (OTMRP) strives to empower older adults with the knowledge and confidence to utilize public transportation, which they can access to stay connected to their family, friends, and the greater community.
OTMRP has partnered with numerous organizations to host a variety of countywide events throughout the month of May to celebrate National Older Americans Month.
