All Shrewsbury Senior Center events, programs, and classes that take place in the center are suspended until further notice.

  • The Senior Center is closed to the public until further notice (effective March 16, 2020).

WRTA will provide service to currently eligible ADA (American with Disabilities Act) registered riders who are travelling in the ADA service area. This is a constantly changing situation and WRTA will continue to update as necessary.  ADA riders may contact PBSI @ 508-752-9283 ext. 1 to request transportation. All others requesting transportation should contact Yellow Cab Company at 508-754-3211.
