9 Town Transit operates two types of services, deviated fixed routes and Dial-A-Ride. Both services are open to the general public with no age restrictions.
Deviated Fixed Routes
Four deviated fixed routes operate through major corridors of the region on a regular schedule. These routes will also deviate up to 3/4 mile with a reservation. The routes provide service both within the region and to the neighboring cities of Madison, Middletown and New London. They also offer free connections to CTTransit New Haven and Hartford divisions, Southeast Area Transit and Middletown Area Transit. Click here for a complete list of routes and schedules.
For trips to or from destinations not within a deviated fixed route service area or for persons who have difficulty using the deviated fixed route because of a disability, 9 Town Transit also operates door-to-door demand response service known as Dial-A-Ride. With one day advance reservation, Dial-A-Ride provides transportation from the door of your pick-up location to the door of your destination anywhere within the towns of Chester, Clinton, Deep River, Essex, Killingworth, Lyme, Old Lyme, Old Saybrook and Westbrook. Service is also provided within Haddam west of the Connecticut River. Dial-A-Ride service is open to the general public with no restrictions on age or ability. More information can be found in our online schedule book.
