The local public transportation system, 9 Town Transit (9TT), is partnering with the United Way to bring transportation to the residents of Puerto Rico who have landed in Connecticut following the devastating hurricane, Maria.

In addition to aid being provided for housing, healthcare, food, and clothing, 9TT and the United Way saw a need for assistance with transportation.

“These new residents need to access shopping, medical facilities, and jobs, at the very least,” said 9TT Chairman and Chester resident Leslie Strauss. “These bus passes help them restart their lives here in the region.”

To help provide this service, 9TT has started a fund-raiser. For $59, a donor may purchase a pass that will provide unlimited service on all 9TT bus routes, six days a week for an entire calendar month. Passengers can board a 9TT bus in Middletown, ride down to Old Saybrook, and transfer all the way to Madison or East Lyme.

In addition to providing free transportation in the Lower Connecticut River Valley and shoreline, 9TT is encouraging other transit districts and CT Transit to join the movement. Through coordinated transit district efforts, riders will ultimately be able to access locations statewide.

The transit company will be working with the United Way and local emergency services personnel to ensure that the passes go to recipients who are worthy.

To receive program benefits, residents should contact their local emergency management director or call the United Way 2-1-1 help hotline or visit www.211ct.org.

9TT stresses that donations from Connecticut residents are essential. Donations can be made at www.9TownTransit.com/maria.
