Quaboag Valley Community Development Corporation (QVCDC) received a $425,000 Synergy Initiative Pilot Grant for the Quaboag Connector project. Developed through a Design Thinking process that elicited authentic community involvement, this project reflects community members’ need for a rural transportation system, both fixed-route (shuttle) and demand-response options, for travel to destinations for social determinants of health activities such as healthcare and employment. The project builds on the existing Quaboag Connector, a demand-response service. The new fixed-route shuttle will provide same-day service which allows for spontaneity of travel and meeting riders’ same-day travel needs.
