Did you know that Essex is the only community in the state of Vermont to offer free Senior Van transportation for residents? Any resident of the Town of Essex (including Essex Junction) over the age of 60 may use the senior van for in-town rides at no cost. Examples of how our seniors use the van: trips to the gym, doctor and hairdresser appointments, grocery shopping or visiting friends/family. There are even a few locations across the border into Williston and Colchester that transportation is provided for medical appointments.
The vans are equipped with a wheelchair lift and operate 9 a.m. to 4.m. Monday through Friday.
