Participants arrive at PRIME beginning at 10:00 AM. PRIME has a contract with a transportation company, Vital Transit, that will provide you with door-to-door transportation to and from PRIME (this is included in the PRIME monthly excluded services fee). Vital Transit is trained to handle a variety of special needs. Upon arrival at PRIME there is “coffee time” where you will be served refreshments and will have an opportunity for conversation. We have two arrival times to choose from: 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM.
