Please join us for the Know How To Go kickoff event at the GBT bus station. Know How To Go is a transportation guide for seniors, people with disabilities, and veterans.
This event will highlight the many transportation alternatives available in Connecticut's southwest region for seniors, veterans and people with disabilities. Scheduled speakers include Margaret Mixon, Regional Mobility Manager from the Kennedy Center, and GBT CEO Doug Holcomb.
We’ll have people on hand to talk with you about travel options and programs. Come and learn more about the many options there are for getting around. Hope to see you there!
–Wendy Bloch, Founder of Mobility Services, The Kennedy Center, Inc.
Access to jobs, medical appointments, shopping and other important community services can sometimes be a challenge. GBT has made getting there easier for seniors and riders with disabilities. All of the city buses are equipped to safely accommodate common wheelchairs and mobility devices.
Priority seating is set aside in the front of the buses. GBT drivers are trained in the safe use of all accessibility equipment and understand the needs of riders with disabilities.
Travel Training is a program that teaches people with disabilities, veterans, and seniors how to use the local bus and rail system safely. Once trained, people find new freedom, self-reliance, and success!
Elaine, a resident of Bridgeport, CT, utilizes the taxi voucher program to get around, “I take the taxi for pleasure, mainly shopping around town. I like having an option when other transportation isn’t available. The wheelchair accessible taxis are important to help people get around better.”
Paratransit bus service for people with disabilities is available throughtout the southwestern region of Connecticut. Wherever there is public bus service, there is usually paratransit service. You can fill out an application with the service provider in your area.
