The Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York has announced a pilot program to offer free Uber rides to need-qualified clients in Fulton, Montgomery and Schoharie counties.
LASNNY Executive Director Lillian Moy said the grand opening of the organization’s new location at 6 Market St. in Amsterdam Thursday provided the perfect time and location to announce the free transportation pilot program. She said the Amsterdam office will service income-qualified clients in Fulton, Montgomery and Schoharie counties.
“We wondered how our low-income clients get to court or to an administrative hearing if they don’t have transportation,” Moy said. “And we thought Amsterdam would be a good place to try this experiment.”
