The goal of the program is to supplement existing senior transportation services such as Dial-A-Ride, the fixed route bus service and services offered through the Municipal Grant. This program will be integrated with existing services to make sure that every rider is receiving the most appropriate and cost-effective service.

 

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.
