Getting around in mostly rural Vermont can be a challenge for those without a car or for those who can no longer drive.
In Bennington and Rutland counties, free or low cost transportation services are available for seniors and people with disabilities who need individual rides to medical appointments (near and far), essential grocery and other shopping or to visit a relative in a nursing home or hospital.
The Rutland Elders on the Go program offers bus trips from nearly every town in both counties.
For information on senior and disabled transportation options, call the Senior HelpLine 802-786-5991 or 1-800-642-5119. The Southwestern Vermont Council on Aging has been serving Rutland and Bennington counties since 1974.
