Lex-Connect is a subsidized taxi voucher program available to Lexington residents who are age 60 and up (or have qualified for a ride from a Lexington Social Worker). The service is a safety-net service meant to fill gaps in transportation when other options (i.e. MBTA, Lexpress, The RIDE/RIDEflex, FISH, etc.) may not be suitable. Participants must be able to get in and out of a taxi unassisted.
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 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.
