Seniors wishing to use this transportation service must be at least 55 years of age or be disabled. Seniors may want to keep in mind that 24 hours notice is required for this service.
- Michigan does not tax seniors on Social Security benefits. Pensions and retirement savings account withdrawals, however, are partially taxed. Taylor seniors may find that Michigan’s tax policies make living in the area more affordable.
- The Taylor area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Beaumont Hospital, Vibra Hospital of Southeastern Michigan – Taylor Campus, and Henry Ford Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

Although summers are warm with temperatures averaging 83 degrees, winters are chilly with low average temperatures around 19 degrees. The area also gets 34 inches of rain each year, and 43 inches of snow, both of which result in only 183 sunny days annually.
