Area shortage of senior transport

To the editor:

Currently, there is an extreme shortage of available transportation for seniors to and from Marquette, Aspirus Wausau and Mayo Clinic. Thee Western UP Planding Development Region suggests either contacting the few cab companies up here that my or may not be able to transport, or download apps for out-of-area Uber or Lyft services — all of which are cumbersome and hit-or-miss and expensive.

Isn’t it about time that some definite arrangements be made between out of area hospitals and our local facilities to provide more scheduled and regular transportation for our growing numbers of seniors in the U.P.?
