Other Senior Transportation Options & WRTD Municipal Grant Program

Some towns within the Windham region offer Dial-A-Ride services for local residents. See the list of towns below along with descriptions of each service provided, as they vary from town to town.


The Municipal Grant is used to provide mileage reimbursement to “civilians” who volunteer to provide transportation in their personal vehicles (demand responsive) to those who need rides to shops, churches, medical appointments, etc. 

The Municipal Grant reimburses the Town for mileage put on by the senior van for outings and recreational adventures   

The services provided have no fixed times.  They are scheduled either through the Senior Center or through the Selectmen’s Office.
