Transportation

Sandown Senior Affairs Transportation Program (SSATP) was created by a group of volunteers available for Sandown residents in need of transportation. They provide rides to residents age 55 years and older or disabled residents who otherwise would be unable to get to their necessary appointments. They provide rides to and from doctor and dentist appointments, medical treatments, trips to the pharmacy, library, nursing homes, grocery shopping and food pantry. We help our community members maintain their independence by providing these rides free of charge.

For more information call the Sandown Police Department at 603-887-0216 and you will be put in contact with an SSATP Volunteer.
