Franklin-Grand Isle Elders & Persons with Disabilities (E&D) Transportation Program
The Franklin-Grand Isle E&D Transportation Program supports community members through affordable transportation to medical appointments, local adult day centers, senior meal sites, and to access fresh food at the grocery store. The E&D Transportation Program is specifically designed to serve older adults and persons with disabilities. In our region this service is provided by Green Mountain Transit (GMT) in Franklin County and Champlain Islanders Developing Essential Resources (CIDER) in Grand Isle County. The providers use a combination of buses, lift-equipped vans, sedans and taxis, along with volunteer drivers who use personal vehicles to give rides to community members.
The Franklin Grand Isle E&D Transportation Committee typically meets quarterly (March, June, September & December). Due to COVID-19, the Committee currently meets remotely over Zoom. Call-in information and links are available in each meeting agenda.
For more information on the E&D Program and Committee, please contact Kathy Lavoie by email or (802) 782-1924.
The Franklin Grand Isle E&D Transportation Committee oversees and plans the work of the program in in the region.
