Norwalk (CT) expands ride-share service with 6 new vans

  • Date: 12/08/2023

The Norwalk Transit District is expanding its on-demand ride-share service thanks to a $2 million state grant.

“Today, we are celebrating the expansion of a new and innovative service, microtransit,” said Matt Pentz, chief executive officer for the district, at Norwalk Community College Thursday morning. “We will be exploring a solution for the first and last mile challenge in transportation.”

“Microtransit is an affordable on-demand ride-sharing service that people can use in real-time with an app or by contacting a call center to request a ride,” Pentz explained.

With the grant, Norwalk will be expanding its fleet of vehicles by adding six minivans to the Wheels2U program, which originally launched in 2018.
