Another grant-supported transportation pilot program for people who experience transportation challenges is coming soon: MAKING THE CONNECTIONS.  We’ll keep you posted.

Ride services (such as Lyft, Uber, taxis, etc.) will be subsidized for qualified participants for travel in Sudbury, within a ten-mile radius, or beyond 10 miles up to 30 miles.  The info below is general and details may change a bit by the time this program launches.

WHO

  • Residents over 50 years old
  • Residents with a disability
  • Sudbury military veterans
  • Residents who are financially vulnerable

HOW MUCH

  • $1 per ride within Sudbury
  • $2 per ride within a ten-mile radius of Sudbury
  • the first $10 of fare beyond 10 miles up to 30 miles

HOW

How to apply and get registered, and how to call or get help calling for a ride will come soon.  Watch for info at Town offices and the Town website.

WHY

  • To fill the gap left when on-demand paratransit, public vans, and shuttles are not running, don’t connect to other lines, or don’t go where riders need to
  • To collect data for planning better public transit for our suburban/semi-rural town and region
