GET A RIDE: call 1-877-428-2882 ext. 5 or 603-821-0569
CVTC’s Volunteer Drivers provide “no fee” transportation for people who do not have access to transportation because of age, ability, economic situation or other limiting circumstances. Our trip purposes include non-emergency medical & social service appointments, as well as trips to the grocery store, the pharmacy, and the bank and post office.
Requests need to be made by calling the Transportation Coordinator at 603-821-0569 a minimum of five (5) business days prior to the ride. Drivers select rides based on their availability. CVTC will call riders two (2) business days before the ride if there is no volunteer available.
Taking care of yourself can’t be on top of the list if your day-to-day responsibilities and needs aren’t being met. That’s where CVTC comes in. By providing transportation services, we can help meet basic life needs, making it easier and less stressful for you to focus on your health. In 2020, 71 Volunteer Drivers served 234 riders from 34 towns in the Monadnock Region (see map of towns). The drivers logged in 69,918 miles and donated 3.474 hours of their time.
CVTC provides rides for people whose mobility is dependent on a wheelchair. We subcontract with wheelchair-van providers to give you the rides you need to get to the doctor, a social service appointment, the pharmacy, or to go grocery shopping, CVTC can help you — or someone you know — get to such essential services. Feel free to call us at Community Volunteer Transportation Company: 1-877-428-2882 ext. 5 or 603-821-0569.
