Norwalk (CT) launches expanded Wheels2U rideshare service and app, broadening transit system with $2 rides

  • Date: 04/11/2024

Traveling around the city just got easier with the launch of the Norwalk Transit District’s expanded Wheels2U microtransit service and app.

“Microtransit is an innovative on-demand rideshare service that has been designed to broaden the availability of public transportation by using smaller vehicles to reach more remote areas for people who are located in places where the big bus can’t go,” Matt Pentz, CEO of the Norwalk Transit District, said at a ceremony Tuesday morning at the Norwalk Senior Center.

Funded by a $2 million state grant, the city’s Wheels2U transit service has seven vans — two of which are accessible under the Americans with Disabilities Act — that can connect the most rural parts of Norwalk to the public transit system.
