ABOUT US -- Limited public transportation in the nine towns within TASCs service area created a barrier to accessing important health care and other basic life needs for many residents who do not own vehicles, or who are not able to drive themselves.

TASC was started as a cooperative effort of several churches in these communities, and some of TASC's volunteer drivers are members of these congregations, but rides are open to all eligible residents of TASC member communities, regardless of religious affiliation. TASC also welcomes volunteer drivers and ride schedulers who are not associated with any of the partnering congregations or organizations.

TASC annual rides given to the citizens of our NH Seacoast communities have risen from 1939 in 2007 to over 5000 rides in 2011.

TASC was one of five senior transportation programs nationwide to receive the Beverly Foundation's STAR Award for Excellence (click here)
