Disabled persons under the age of 60 must provide proof of their disability status. Reimbursement, as allowed, will be to the Senior or Disabled Person who can then distribute funds to the volunteer driver.
Please contact the Coventry Transportation Coordinator at 860-742-3525 for more information on this service as well as other services they provide.

It is available to all residents of Mansfield age 60 and older, and rides are provided both locally and out-of-town to a variety of destinations. While there is no charge for rides, donations are accepted to help to support program expenses. At this time priority will be given to individuals who need rides to medical appointments locally, but this will be expanded as more drivers become available.
If you are interested in volunteering your time as a driver, or if you need a ride, please call Gianna Stebbins at 860-429-0262 ext. 2.
