Know How To Go, Mobility Resources for Southwestern CT

Welcome to “Know How to Go,” your one stop for information on all your travel needs in southwestern Connecticut.  This program is designed to enhance people’s access to their communities by identifying the best transportation service to meet the unique needs of seniors, individuals with a disability, and veterans.  Our purpose is to provide you with a host of valuable travel-related information about all transportation services in the southwestern region of Connecticut.  From the public bus to accessible taxi service, we will let you know your transportation options along with special programs and discounts for each service.  As the Regional Mobility Management team for southwest Connecticut, we are also tasked with gathering information about transportation challenges you face and helping to find solutions.  Together with our community partners, the Regional Mobility Manager at The Kennedy Center will work with you to connect you with the best service available in your town and beyond.

Funded by Federal Transit Administration and CT Department of Transportation dollars, the Regional Mobility Manager works closely with all local transportation providers including: Greater Bridgeport Transit; Norwalk Transit District; CTTRANSIT Stamford; Milford Transit District; Valley Transit District; CTrides; volunteer driver programs; taxi services; and rail transit providers to provide the most comprehensive service to meet your individual needs.  We also collaborate closely with our network of human service agencies and other service providers in the region.  The Regional Mobility Management program’s service area includes the coastal towns between Greenwich and Milford and north to the Valley region.  For a map of our service area, click on the Guidebook of Services on our website at www.knowhowtogoct.org, or contact the Regional Mobility Manager at the number below to request a hard copy of the Guidebook.

The Kennedy Center, Inc., a non-profit agency that provides a wide array of services for people with disabilities, seniors and veterans, administers the Regional Mobility Management program.  The program is guided by a Steering Committee whose members consist of a variety of stakeholders in the Bridgeport/Stamford Urbanized Area including representatives from the Western Connecticut Council of Governments, Greater Bridgeport Regional Council, Valley Council of Governments, Connecticut Department of Transportation, Greater Bridgeport Transit District, Norwalk Transit District, Valley Transit District, and others. Steering Committee membership is open and participation is welcomed and encouraged from all who are interested in improving transportation services and options for people with disabilities, seniors and veterans in southwest Connecticut.
