Silver Key Senior Services has expanded Ft. Carson Army Post rides, for veterans and their dependents ages 60 and older, by adding two more dedicated routes to the schedule because of increased demand.

Carson.
• Morning Route: 9:00 a.m. pick-up / 11:00 a.m. return

Regardless of the purpose for transportation, a lead time of three working days is required for transportation reservations. First-time passengers should allow 5 working days lead time in order to complete the required phone-registration process prior to making reservations.

Volunteer drivers are in great demand. Volunteer drivers at Silver Key often begin as "temporary" drivers and find an immediate connection to those they assist, resulting in an amazing and rewarding volunteer experience. A good driving record, a regular driver's license and four hours is all that's necessary to join the dedicated volunteers who drive the Silver Key vehicles.
