Calhan Connection will allow eastern El Paso County residents to take a bus to and from the Colorado Springs area for $5 each way. For 65 and older, transportation is free. The program was launched Wednesday, October 18th, by Envida, a nonprofit that provides transportation and home care to Colorado Springs residents who are elderly or disabled.
In the past, some programs have sporadically provided transportation for seniors. But this will be the first to serve people of all ages, said Patty Jolly, a third-generation Calhan resident and community outreach coordinator.
