MISSION AND HISTORY

The Transportation Association of Greenwich commenced business in 1984 as a private non-profit organization whose mission was to provide specialized transportation in the Town of Greenwich. Our mission is to serve seniors (60+) and people of any age that are disabled with dignity and respect by providing specialized transportation to get them to where they need to go. In addition, TAG also serves school aged youth and other members of the community looking for cost effective transportation and reliable service. 

 

TAG was created over 30 years ago by a man who had a vision for the disabled and seniors of Greenwich. That man was Ruppert Vernon and created TAG with his first executive director, Pam Schaffner. Together they formed Transportation Association of Greenwich, whose primary goal was to offer a specialized transportation service with professional drivers.

 

In the early days of TAG, there was one staff person and 2 drivers that serviced ARC (now Abilis), Greenwich Adult Daycare (now River House), plus many individuals within the community. Today, TAG has 6 staff members and 7 drivers. TAG continues to serve Greenwich and the surrounding areas with professional and respectful drivers whose first priority always remains our clients.
