Where would you go if you could? 

What if transportation was not an issue in getting you to your destination at night and on weekends when the Mini Bus is not operating?  Perhaps you want to go to a restaurant, the cemetery, a birthday party, a church service or a friend’s house? 

Good news!  You can!  In conjunction with Nutmeg Senior Rides, Suffield Community Aid has funding to assist financially qualified residents, age 65 and older or individuals with a disability, to get to where you want to go.  Nutmeg Senior Rides provides door-through-door transportation for any purpose, 365 days a year. 

Call Suffield Community Aid at 860-668-1986 to see if you qualify!
