Providing Transportation to Medical Appointments for Merrimack Valley Seniors
Northern Essex Elder Transport (NEET) is a non-profit volunteer driver program serving seniors in 14 communities of the Merrimack Valley.
Our volunteer drivers provide curb-to-curb, non-lift transportation for seniors to local and out-of-town medical appointments when other means are either unavailable or unaffordable. You must be 60 or older to be eligible for this service.
If you need a ride, contact your local Council on Aging. See Transportation for contact information.
