Looking for options for getting around the Northeast Kingdom and even the greater Vermont area? We can recommend three for shared transportation that includes buses, wheelchair-accessible vans, taxis, and volunteer drivers to get residents to, and from, their destinations.

NEK Council on Aging partners with Rural Community Transportation (RCT), Inc. to coordinate travel for eligible residents to their medical appointments and to access such nutrition needs as grocery shopping or senior-community dining opportunities.

To learn more about these options and to schedule a ride with three days’ notice, contact our Information & Referral Specialists by calling our statewide, toll-free number: 1-800-642-5119.

Or, you can send us questions via e-mail:
