CRT’s RSVP Volunteer Medical Transportation Program Offers Free Roundtrip Rides to Medical Appointments for Seniors and Veterans

CRT’s RSVP Volunteer Medical Transportation program provides free roundtrip rides to seniors like Maureen for needed medical appointments.

Reporter Ken Huston from WTNH News 8 shared details about this valuable service that operates in eight cities and towns in Central Connecticut with their viewers.

Volunteer drivers take seniors and veterans from their homes to medical appointments and then back home again – providing true door-to-door-to-door service – at absolutely no charge to the participant.

CRT’s Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is seeking dedicated volunteer drivers for its Volunteer Medical Transportation (VMT) Program that brings seniors and veterans from their home to medical appointments and back home again – all for free!

The VMT program remained operational throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, providing more than 1,000 rides to seniors and veterans in need of this service last year. And now the service can provide transportation to COVID-19 vaccine appointments, too.

For more information about this valuable program – either to become a volunteer, or to request a future ride – please contact Theresa Strong at: 860-519-3484 or [email protected].
