Special Services Transportation Agency is a private not-for-profit corporation operating out of Colchester, VT. The organization was started in May 1982 with just one van in response to the need in Chittenden County for transportation services for the elderly and disabled.
SSTA’s mission is to provide accessible transportation for people who have specialized mobility needs.
Many individuals have difficulty using conventional modes of transportation, such as cars and buses because of a physical or mental disability. For these people, SSTA’s service may be the only transportation that they can use.
SSTA currently has more than 50 vehicles in its fleet. Of these vehicles, 30 are lift equipped for wheelchairs. We are constantly growing, and are providing an average of over 600 to 700 rides per day. The organization currently employs over 70 full and part time employees.
SSTA provides coordinated transportation service to many area human service agencies. A few examples are the Visiting Nurse Association’s Adult Day Programs, Champlain Senior Center (an important meal site for many Burlington Elders), Howard Community Health Services, and Champlain Valley Agency on Aging (CVAA)
The transportation SSTA provides allows clients an opportunity for social interaction, job training and employment, medical services and therapy.
