REGULAR BUS SERVICE

The two Center mini buses operate Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM when you need transportation within New Milford to medical appointments, the Center, the grocery store or the hairdresser/barber shop.  Any resident of New Milford over 60 years of age, or individual with disabilities under 60, who has been determined ADA eligible by Housatonic Area Regional Transit (HART), can ride the bus.

This is a “curb to curb” service that is scheduled on a “first call, first serve” basis.
