Passengers must register in advance for the program by contacting CCPD if under the age of 60 and providing documentation of disability and proof of Cambridge residency or by contacting the Council on Aging (COA) if 60 or older. Coupons are issued in books of 10; each coupon is worth $2.50.  The passenger may use one coupon for fares under $7.00 and a maximum of two coupons for a $5.00 discount for one-way fares of $7.00 or more.
