Transportation for Seniors

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.
