Lex-Connect is a subsidized taxi voucher program available to Lexington residents who are age 60 and up. Younger residents may qualify in very limited cases, subject to approval by Human Services staff. Lex-Connect is intended as a safety-net service to fill gaps in transportation, not as a primary mode of getting around. Other options (i.e. MBTA, Lexpress, The RIDE/RIDEflex, FISH, etc.) may be available. Participants must be able to get in and out of a taxi unassisted.
Bring your proof of age and proof of Lexington residency (such as your driver's license or state ID) to the Lexington Community Center. You will fill out a one-page form and a member of the Transportation Services department will check your ID. You can buy vouchers at the same time, or wait until later.
Transportation Services is staffed Mon-Fri 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Vouchers cost $5 each and seniors can buy a maximum of 12 vouchers per month. Trips cost 1 to 3 vouchers ($5 to $15) each way, plus an optional tip of $1 to $3. Participants can buy vouchers online, in person at the LCC, or by mailing a check payable to the Town of Lexington to: Town of Lexington Attn: Transportation 39 Marrett Road Lexington, MA 02421
Please make sure to include a return mailing address and allow at least 5 business days for mailing each way, plus 1-2 business days for processing.
