Statement on Buffalo Tragedy
MFS Project Linkage currently offers transportation for Project Linkage participants who need access to medical & nutrition services. Through our partnership with Ride Connection, we focus on transporting residents of North & NE Portland, west of 82nd Ave.
Our regular weekly shopping shuttles are still operating. Since we’re limiting the number of passengers to no more than four at a time, pickup times may be modified to accommodate all who need to go on any of our shuttles. Currently, there is no waiting list.
We are currently putting as much space between passengers as we can by limiting shared rides in our van to people who occupy the same household and by limiting passengers on our bus trips to no more than four people at the same time. We also wipe down vehicles after every drop off. Our drivers are wearing gloves, and masks are also available for them to wear. Our volunteer services have been temporarily suspended.
Office staff is available Mon – Fri from 7:00 am – 5:00 pm. Call Project Linkage at 503.249.0471 to reserve a seat on our weekly shopping shuttles*. For all other ride requests, call Ride Connection at 503.226.0700 & we’ll do what we can to schedule a ride. Please have the following information ready when calling: the name of the rider, the date of the requested trip, the address of the destination, the requested time of arrival, the time of the requested return ride.
*Shuttles are open to residents of Kenilworth Park Plaza, Oddfellows, Sacred Heart Villa, Westmoreland Union Manor, Sellwood Center, Silvercrest, Weidler Commons, Hollywood Towne, House Hollywood East, Emilie House, Providence House, Center Commons, The Heights at Columbia Knoll, Laurelhurst Village, Hazelwood Retirement Center, Lents Village, Powell Plaza, & Woodland Heights.
