Meeting Resident Needs
The goal of the Coventry Rides program is to meet the transportation needs of the elderly and disabled residents of Coventry in order for them to live as independently as possible.
The Senior Transportation Program provides free, handicap-accessible van service for travel within the Bolton, Tolland, Vernon, and Manchester areas on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Transportation is available for medical appointments, grocery shopping, employment, voting and errands. Priority will be given to people who need rides for doctor and medical appointments. We try to cluster trips to the same general areas. In many cases, the driver will be able to wait until the rider is ready to return home.
Days & Hours of Operation
Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays - 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Please call to make reservations at least 48 hours in advance and by 12 noon on Thursday for the following week. Calls should be made to the Coventry Senior Center Transportation Coordinator, Sarah Leete.
For transportation to the Windham Regional Transit District, please call Dial-A-Ride at (860) 456-2223. Dial-a-Ride services are available for Coventry to Coventry transit as well as to the other 8 towns in the Windham region.
Looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity? Come join the Coventry Rides Program as a driver one morning per month. No special license is required and training is provided. Please contact the Coventry Transportation Coordinator for more information.
