We are here for you!
Since 1982 the GetAbout has provided transportation services to the residents of New Canaan. GetAbout currently delivers 10,000 rides annually to residents of New Canaan. We not only provide transportation to senior residents, we strive to meet the needs of all members of our community, 18 years or older, who are unable to drive, either temporarily or due to a long-term disability.
Transportation services are available Monday through Friday, 9 am to 4 pm. Pre-arranged appointments are necessary for service. Please see the list of holidays listing program limitations.
GetAbout is New Canaan’s only transportation service with six wheel-chair accessible minivans ready to accommodate our client’s transportation needs.
Our drivers all have public-service licenses. All drivers are insured and trained in the handling of non-ambulatory riders. The GetAbout provides safe, dependable, non-emergency transportation service eliminating the need for expensive commercial medical van services.
The GetAbout volunteer Board has expertise in management, legal operations, finance, community, relations, fundraising, marketing and publicity. Our volunteers work hard to put our clients first.
