Southfield Senior Adult Transportation Options

Mobility is critical to people of all ages. It gives us independence. Those without the ability to drive often feel "trapped" in their homes. The City of Southfield and SMART (Suburban Mobility Authority Regional Transportation) are continuously working together to improve community transit service to accommodate the needs of Southfield's senior citizens and those with disabilities.

SMART Transportation

Regular scheduled stops for SMART (Suburban Mobility Authority Regional Transportation) buses have been arranged at more than 25 Southfield locations. Scheduled transportation to theaters, sporting events, shopping, and personal errands are available. For a listing of pickup locations and destinations please call the Southfield Adult Recreation Center 50+ at (248) 796-4650. Curb-to-Curb bus service is available by appointment. Those requiring regular service through SMART may call their offices at 866-962-5515 at least two days in advance of the required pickup.

TOSS (Transportation of Southfield Seniors)

Transportation of Southfield Seniors (TOSS) provides transportation for senior residents (age 60+) or permanently physically challenged residents (of any age) who reside in Southfield or Lathrup Village. TOSS operates within the geographical area bounded by Fourteen Mile Road on the north, Eight Mile Road on the south, Coolidge on the east, and Middlebelt on the west.

TOSS travels to Providence and Beaumont Facilities on a regular basis. Transportation to and from other medical facilities, offices, banks, and shopping is also provided by TOSS. First come, first served appointments can be made any time within a month before the appointment.

TOSS uses lift-equipped buses for wheelchair or walker users who require them. Riders who require wheelchairs or walkers, needing assistance on and off the vehicle, are to be accompanied by companion (both at pick up and destination) to assist the rider on and off. For personal safety, all wheelchairs must be equipped with an attached seat belt.

While a $5 donation per round trip is suggested, additional donations are welcome.

For more information and arrangements, please call 248-796-4658 between 8am and 1:30 pm Monday thru Friday.

The TOSS program is made possible by grants from Ascension Health, Beaumont Hospitals, the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), the City of Southfield and SMART.
