Older Adults and People with Disabilities
Getting around made easier
Vermont has many options for mobility if you don’t have access to a car or have a condition that can impair your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. Whether you need a ride to doctor’s appointments, work, or for personal errands, there’s public transportation options available in cities and towns throughout Vermont. There are many programs that fill gaps in existing transportation services for certain groups like older Vermonters, as well as individuals with disabilities.
Vermont’s Older Adults and People with Disabilities (E&D) Transportation Program plays an important role in transportation services for older adults age 60 and above as well as individuals with disabilities as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Vermont’s public transit providers serve as regional transportation brokers and work with human service agency partners to coordinate E&D trips together with Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) provided through Medicaid, contracted service with community organizations and institutions, and transportation for the general public.
