The mission of Nutmeg Senior Rides is to improve the quality of life for people 50 and older and adults with visual impairments by providing members affordable, door-through-door, personal transportation.
Rides to work are available as well as any other purpose and service is 365 days a year.
Volunteers provide over 50% of our rides, and are the key factor in keeping rides available & affordable, keeping program costs down, and keeping our program intrinsically connected to the community.
We improve access to health care. We are flexible so that a member can go to the doctor and then to the pharmacy on the way home.
We allow people to "age in place" without being home bound. Most will age in neighborhoods where daily activities will require personal transportation. Absent access to affordable travel options, seniors face isolation, a reduced quality of life, and possible economic hardship.
Nutmeg Senior Rides is a 501 (c)(3) organization that relies on donations to supplement fares.
