Hampton does not have public transportation. Two programs are available to those who need assistance with transportation.
Dial-A-Ride provides transportation service Monday-Friday within a ten-town Windham region. To schedule a ride, call the Dial-A-Ride dispatcher at 860 456-1462 by 4 pm, a minimum of two business days before you'd like a ride. Persons 60 years of age and older and persons with disabilities have priority scheduling. Rides for the general public are scheduled on an as-available basis.
Operation of Dial-A-Ride requires the grouping of rides, whenever possible, according to destination. Dial-A-Ride is not a taxi service.
Transportation for Medical Services
"Program in Lieu of Mass transit" program allows reimbursement of mileage expenses when volunteers assist the disabled and residents over age 60 with transportation to medical facilities and related services.
Forms for reimbursement are available through the Tax Collector's Office and should be returned there monthly.
Reimbursement as allowed will be to the Senior or Disabled person who can then distribute funds to the volunteer. A husband driving a wife (and vise versa), or a parent driven by a child is reimbursable. Questions should be directed to Karlene Deal or Harry Baum in the Tax Office at 455-9132 Ext/ 3 or to the Program Volunteer Leader, Mario Fiondella, at 455-0078.
Disabled persons should register through the Hampton Assessors Office.
The Hampton Senior and Disabled Transportation Program is part of the State of Connecticut's Program In Lieu of Mass Transit. This program is funded by the State of Connecicut through the Windham Regional Transit District and WINCOG (Windham Area Council of Governments).
