We know how hard it can be to get around in Vermont if you don’t drive. Senior Solutions collaborates with a number of transit providers to identify transportation solutions for you. This may include a van, a taxi, or a volunteer driver.
Northern Windsor County & Southern Orange County
Tri-Valley Transit and Ticket to Ride
Serving Northern Windsor County and Southern Orange Counties, this program provides door-to-door transportation to a variety of destinations including grocery stores, medical appointments, work, errands, and social events. This is a free service for riders over the age of 60 and those with disabilities when there is no other transportation available in the household.
Windsor & Windham Counties
The MOOVER provides free door-to-door transportation for riders 60+ and for persons with ADA-defined disabilities. Call 1-888-869-6287 or 1-802-460-7433.
If you have an ADA-defined disability and live within ¾ mile of the Red Line or White Line in Brattleboro or a ¼ mile off the fixed route in Wilmington the bus can deviate from its route to give you a ride. For this service, you must call at least 24 hours (excluding weekends) in advance. (Wilmington 1-802-464-8487; Brattleboro 1-802-869-6287)
Medicaid Non-Emergency Medical Transportation
Free transportation for Medicaid-eligible residents who need access to medical appointments. This is a free service for all Medicaid-eligible residents of Orange and Northern Windsor Counties, who do not have access to a vehicle and need a medical transport. To be eligible, a person must be enrolled in the traditional Medicaid program.
