Hurricane Maria Transportation Program

As our friends from Puerto Rico arrive at Bradley Airport, they are greeted by a public that is eager to assist in taking care of their needs in any way possible. So far, aid with housing, health care, food and clothing are the primary objectives. But what about assistance with transportation? These new residents will need to access shopping, medical facilities and jobs, at the very least.

The United Way has a 211 help hotline and a comprehensive website. 9 Town Transit is working through the United Way to inform those in need with free bus transportation.

To help provide this service, the district has started a fundraiser. For $59, a donor may purchase a pass that will provide unlimited service on all 9TT bus routes, 6 days a week for an entire calendar month. Passengers can board a 9TT bus in Middletown, ride down to Old Saybrook, and transfer all the way to Madison or East Lyme.

In addition to providing free transportation in the Lower CT River Valley and shoreline, 9TT is encouraging other transit districts and CT Transit to join the movement. Through coordinated transit district efforts, riders will ultimately be able to access locations statewide.

Your participation is critically important. We will coordinate with the United Way and the local EMS in each town to ensure that the passes go to worthy recipients. The more passes sold, the more folks will be helped for as long as possible. Just click the “Donate” button below to participate.
