TRANSPORTATION FOR THE ELDERLY AND DISABLED

 

The Senior and Transportation Services Department offers Elderly and Handicapped Transportation for medical appointments, shopping, socialization, cultural events, local restaurants and senior center programs.  Transportation for out-of-town doctor appointments is also available on a limited basis. Senior Transporation Service is available to residents over the age of 55 or those over 21 years of age who are either temporarily or permanently disabled; all four buses are lift-equipped to handle wheelchairs and individuals that have trouble with steps.  Riders make a suggested donation of $.50 for in-town service and $2.50 for out-of-town service per each entrance on the van.

Arrangements for rides can be made by calling 203-272-0047 at least twenty-four hours in advance. 

 


Free transportation is available to seniors and disabled adults every Friday of the month through the Greater Waterbury Transit District Dial-A-Ride.  Passengers may go anywhere in Cheshire, Wolcott, Waterbury, Watertown, Naugatuck, Middlebury, Prospect and Thomaston between 9:00 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. Appointments must be made at least three days in advance. This is a great opportunity to go shopping, out to dinner or visit a friend.
