This service offers curb-to-curb service, although door-to-door service is provided upon request. Seniors should call after 5:00 p.m. the night before to confirm their reservation.

Transportation, however, is significantly higher than the national average at 130.5, which is something seniors may want to think about when allocating their monthly budgets.
- Seniors hoping to retire in a safe city may find it in Flushing. The city has a violent crime rate of 10.1 and a property crime rate of 20.4, both significantly lower than the respective national averages of 22.7 and 35.4.
- Flushing gets summer highs of 83 degrees and winter lows of 15. There are only 171 sunny days each year in Flushing, 34 less than the national average of 205, so seniors may want to ensure that prospective facilities have plenty of indoor activities to keep them busy when they can’t go outside.
