It is the vision of RCT to establish a solid foundation for regional development of a safe, efficient public transportation system.
Our Mission is to provide public transportation services for everyone that are safe, reliable, accessible and affordable to enhance the economic, social and environmental health of the communities we serve.
Rural Community Transportation, Inc. (RCT) is a private, non-profit organization, incorporated in November 1991. Previously known as NEKCA transportation, RCT was created through a grant from the Federal Urban Mass Transportation Administration (UMTA), to coordinate Medicaid transportation services. Later, services were expanded to serve the entire Northeast Kingdom and Lamoille County. In 2012 RCT began serving as the Medicaid broker in Orange County.
RCT is a transportation provider that uses all modes of transportation including buses, cars, taxis, vans, and volunteer drivers. We service a wide range of passengers through several programs as well as providing rides to the general public. As the Medicaid broker for Caledonia, Essex, Lamoille, and Orleans counties, RCT coordinates medical trips for Medicaid eligible resident.
RCT also provides coordinated transportation services for the Northeast Kingdom Council on Aging, Adult Day Services, Northeast Kingdom Human Services, Central VT Council on Aging, Out and About, Reach Up and the Northeast Kingdom Community Action. The moving force of RCT is our volunteer driver network. As it has in the past, the demand for service continues to increase the volunteer driver network, allowing RCT to bring people in from the outlying areas to the more heavily populated service centers.
RCT’s service area includes Essex, Caledonia, Orleans and Lamoille counties of Vermont. RCT’s main office is in Lyndonville, Vermont with branch offices in Newport, Vermont and Morrisville, Vermont. Through all of our programs RCT schedules an average of over 200,000 rides a year.
