CRT volunteer transport

Transportation can be a challenge for seniors, but thanks to CRT's Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), and specifically its Volunteer Medical Transportation (VMT) Program, seniors and veterans can get free rides from their home to medical appointments and back again.
The VMT program remained operational throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, providing more than 1,000 rides to seniors and veterans in need of this service last year. And now the service can provide transportation to COVID-19 vaccine appointments, too.
The VMT program includes eight cities/towns: Berlin, Cromwell, New Britain, Plainville, Southington, Suffield, Windsor, and Windsor Locks.
If you need a ride, or want to become a volunteer driver, please check out the RSVP page on CRT's website for more information.
