Eastern Connecticut Transportation Consortium, Inc.

Our mission is to promote the coordination and consolidation of paratransit services for persons of low-income, elderly and disabled individuals in eastern Connecticut.



Fixed-route transportation services are the most practical forms of public transportation available. They operate on a schedule and stop at specific locations along the route.  This lets you know where and when you can board and when you will arrive at your destination.  Because of this, fixed-route services require less planning than using paratransit or other modes of travel.
