Community Connections participants are going places. Whether it’s daily rides to and from Community Connections day programs, an outing to a bank or even a group trip to the park, the majority of our passengers depend on our transportation every day.
That’s why our transportation services are miles ahead. Drivers are committed to ensuring the safety of our passengers and the confidence of their families through the highest levels of reliability and experiences. All drivers are professionally trained and certified in first aid and crisis prevention/intervention training. Vehicles are equipped with real-time GPS monitoring so we always know where they are at all times for added peace of mind, and successful Transit Authority inspections and audits confirm our dedication to safety standards.
Independence is synonymous with freedom of movement and access to the community, and that makes transportation a key part of adopting a more self-sufficient adult life.

What Others are Saying About Transportation
Sue Landry drives the Happy Van. That’s what her riders call her van because they have such a good time during their trips. Sue’s Happy Van is decorated with holiday themes and with Red Sox and Patriots memorabilia during baseball and football seasons. Clients riding the van sing along with the radio, sing baseball songs, talk about their day and generally have a great time. When they arrive at the day center, or back at home, they are smiling and obviously enjoying themselves. This van is also featured annually in the Fall River Annual Children’s Holiday Parade.
