Stagecoach’s purpose is to enhance the economic, social and environmental health of the region by providing safe, reliable, affordable and accessible community transportation services for everyone in the communities it serves.
Stagecoach operates two parallel and complementary transportation systems to achieve its goals.
The Dial-A-Ride System includes transportation programs that focus on elders, persons with disabilities, and low-income families and individuals. These services enhance Stagecoach’s ability to provide comprehensive transportation alternatives for all residents in its service area. Depending on eligibility, Dial-A-Ride may be free or subsidized. Rides are typically provided by
volunteer drivers or our Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible buses when necessary.
Ticket to Ride provides door-to-door transportation to a variety of destinations including grocery stores, medical appointments, work, errands, and social events. This is a free service for riders over the age of 60 and those with disabilities when there is no other transportation available in the household.
The Medicaid Transportation program provides free transportation for Medicaid-eligible residents who need access to medical appointments. This is a free service for all Medicaid- eligible residents of Barnard, Bethel, Bridgewater, Hartford, Hartland, Norwich, Pomfret, Rochester, Royalton, Sharon, Stockbridge, and Woodstock, who do not have access to a vehicle and need a medical transport.
The Fixed Route System connects passengers to employment and shopping centers. The Commuter Service connects passengers from the I-89 and I-91 corridors to employment centers in Montpelier, Randolph, White River Junction, Hanover, and Lebanon.
The Shopping Trips connect passengers from the Route 100, Route 125, and I-89 corridors to retail commercial districts in Randolph VT and West Lebanon NH. The Maxi Taxi provides door- to-door service in the Randolph Area Monday thru Friday between 9:30 and 3:00. The Circulator provides consistent, local service for everyone in the Bradford, Newbury, and Wells River Areas Monday-Friday between 8:30am and 4:30pm.
