The Senior Scrip Program is a Measure C funded program that provides alternative, reliable and affordable transportation to Fresno County residents who are 70 years of age and older. Eligible seniors receive a 75% discount on taxi, Lyft and Uber fares by purchasing scrip in advance. Scrip availability is limited.

In 2018, new ridership increased by 531, bringing the total annual ridership to 1,564 seniors.

Participants simply obtain and submit an eligibility application. Once approved, they can purchase a $20 value booklet of Senior Scrip (that work just like coupons) from select locations for only $5. That’s a 75% discount!

Up to (5) booklets of scrip can be purchased each calendar month. Scrip can then be used like cash to pay for taxi, Uber, or Lyft fares. (Not all taxi companies accept Senior Scrip. See below for a list of qualified taxi companies.)

Senior Scrip can be used at any time, 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week when needed. Senior Scrip booklets can be purchased at select FAX locations, Clovis City Hall, Firebaugh City Hall, Parlier City Hall, select Senior Centers and Fresno COG (FCOG only accepts mail orders). For more information, click the  “Where can I obtain an application and purchase Senior Scrip?” tab at left.

To qualify, you must be a Fresno County resident who is at least 70 years old. Proof of eligibility is required by providing a copy of a California Drivers License, California DMV issued Identification Card or Medicare Card. You must first complete and submit the eligibility forms. All necessary documents can be obtained at select locations only (see below) or on the web at www.fresnocog.org.

Scrip cannot be given or sold to someone else. It is non-transferable, non-negotiable, and non-replaceable. Scrip can only be used to pay for your taxi, Uber, or Lyft services. Scrip cannot be used to tip the driver. Please tip using cash. Users are responsible for scheduling, changing, and canceling trip reservations. Be sure to let the dispatcher know that you will be paying with Senior Scrip when you call to schedule a pick-up. Fresno COG reserves the right to limit scrip sales based on scrip availability.
