The Orange County Planning Department is developing an exciting new computer based application called “Ridetransitorange.com” that is designed to show you how to get from Point A to Point B using public transportation. This new program is undergoing testing, so you are encouraged to go online and try it out. They are looking for your feedback, either by emailing “firstname.lastname@example.org” or by calling 615-3850. Since Warwick has such a vibrant bus system we are excited to use this service to offer our residents even more choices.
Our Friendly Visitor Program is really taking off and has successfully kept more of our senior citizens remaining in their homes.
