CommunityTransport Central is Available to Help Many
 By Donna RhoDes
PLYMOUTH - Seniors ages 60 and older, along with those with disabilities and qualified Medicaid recipients needing rides to medical appointments, can be heartened to know that there is help out there through Transport Central, a nonprofit organization based out of the Whole Village Center in Plymouth, serving sur- rounding communities.
Recognizing the need for these individuals to have safe and reli- able transportation, Transport Central was established more than a decade ago with the goal to ensure that those individuals
Get the Healthcare They Need
receive the healthcare they need. Working in conjunction with local healthcare providers, senior centers, and various service agen- cies, they began providing rides to scheduled medical appointments, nearby hospitals, and any other healthcare needs, thanks to grants and donations for the organiza- tion.
Plymouth resident William (Bill) Bolton is the new Executive Director of Transport Central, bringing his years of experience in the public sector to the agency. For 30 years, Bolton has worked for the State of New Hampshire in many capacities, ranging from lab scientist to assistant director
of Public Health Laboratories and roles within the Certificate of Needs Board, the State Registrar, and Division of Vital Records. Over his career, Bolton obtained a commercial driver’s license and became a driver for an 18-pas- senger commuter bus, known as the Buckboard. The Buckboard provided rides for people from the Plymouth area to their jobs in Concord.
Retiring in 2008, Bolton began working from his home as a na- tional software implementation manager for data and vital records programs. Today he is happy to be serving his community again by overseeing assisting their trans-
portation needs.
Under the leadership of the
founders of Transport Central, Bolton said the agency has seen steady growth over the years as the need for transportation in rural New Hampshire continues to grow. As executive director for the agency now, his focus is on con- tinuing that growth while main- taining and enhancing the “high quality” nonprofit organization that has already been established.
Transport Central serves the towns of Alexandria; Bridgewa- ter; Bristol; Campton; Dorchester; Ellsworth; Groton; Hebron; Hol- derness; Lincoln; New Hampton; North Woodstock; Plymouth;
Rumney; Thornton; Warren; Waterville, and Wentworth. The organization’s primary goal is to increase mobility for seniors, those with disabilities, and others in need. There is no cost for their service. Besides transportation ser- vices, Bolton said volunteers, es- pecially in the Newfound Region, are constantly being sought to pro- vide those much-needed rides for their clients.
