MISSION AND HISTORY

The Transportation Association of Greenwich commenced operations in 1984 as a private
non-profit organization, with a mission to provide specialized transportation for the Town of
Greenwich. TAG serves seniors (60+ years), the disabled of any age, school-age youth and
many other community residents seeking cost effective transportation, with dignity and
respect, providing specialized transportation driving each of our 30,000 passengers, safely
and reliably where they need to go.


TAG was created nearly four decades ago by a local resident with a transportation vision for
the seniors and disabled residents of Greenwich. Ruppert Vernon, First Selectman of the
Town of Greenwich, created The Transportation Association of Greenwich and installed
TAG’s first executive director, Pam Schaffner. Together they formed a local non-profit service
organization, with the primary mission of offering specialized transportation service with
professional drivers.


In the early days of TAG, a single staff person and 2 drivers provided service for ARC (now
Abilis), Greenwich Adult Daycare (now River House), plus many individual residents within
the community. Today, TAG employs 7 staff members and 10 drivers. TAG continues to serve
Greenwich and lower Fairfield County, with professional and courteous drivers who are
always aware that their first priority is to each of TAG’s passengers.
