A GUIDE TO TRANSPORTATION SERVICES
THROUGHOUT MORRIS COUNTY

INTRODUCTION

This guide to transportation options has been compiled by the Morris County Office of Aging, Disabilities
and Community Programming and can be reached by calling Morris County Aging & Disability Resource
Connection 1 (800) 564-4656. In keeping with the tradition of “reaching out” to the disabled and senior
community, we have developed this booklet as a tool to help you gain better access to the services
available. By combining county, municipal and private not-for-profit sponsored transportation services in
one directory, we hope that it will serve as a comprehensive guide.
Many of the services listed in this directory require that appointments be scheduled ahead of time. Please
call the service provider to determine how much advance notice is needed.
The Morris County Department of Human Services cannot warrant or guarantee the quality of service
provided by any transportation provider.
We hope that this directory makes your travels through Morris County easier.
