NORFOLK — New and enhanced rural transportation options are around the corner for Norfolk residents, particularly seniors and those with disabilities who need access to health care and other services. 

The town plans to purchase a vehicle through a federal 5310 grant administered through the state Department of Transportation. Officials are also working closely with Geer Village in North Canaan, where a new computerized software scheduling system and additional ride-share vehicles may give Norfolk residents easier access to medical and other appointments.
