Mobility Ombudsmen (Assistance Getting Around CT) connect people with disabilities, seniors and veterans with accessible, reliable transportation so that they are able to participate in their communities. In our state, a key goal of the program is to identify gaps and barriers to public transportation that prevent individuals from using existing services. Once the gaps have been uncovered, we work with our partners from the transportation and social service communities to find creative solutions. Essentially, we are creating a “one-stop shop” where people can find transportation that will meet their needs.
