VTD2GO Microtransit Service Rolls Out on April 1st.

Derby, CT – Valley Transit District is pleased to announce the launch of its new micro transit service, VTD2GO, which will be available to users beginning April 1, 2024. The on-demand service will be offered Monday through Friday from 5:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., providing convenient transportation options for people commuting within a defined service area in Derby, Ansonia, and Shelton, CT. The service area map is available at

Microtransit is a flexible on-demand transportation service that operates like a cross between ride-sharing and traditional public transit. The service will provide residents and visitors with a flexible and affordable transportation option with rides priced at just $2 per trip. To kick off the program, the first ride will be free for all passengers. To use the microtransit service, riders can download the “VTD2GO” app (available on Apple iOS & Google Play) or call the designated phone number at 203-735-6408 to schedule a ride.

The VTD2GO service, provided in partnership with VIA Mobility LLC, aims to fill transportation gaps and increase accessibility for riders, particularly during evening hours, in a service area where no other options exist. The service will complement existing bus routes and transit hubs by providing seamless connections to CT Transit, Greater Bridgeport Transit, and Metro North services.

“We are excited to introduce this much needed service to our community”, said Mark Pandolfi, Executive Director of Valley Transit District. “This initiative reflects our dedication to meeting the evolving needs of our riders and enhancing overall transit accessibility.”

The microtransit program is currently scheduled to operate through April of 2025. For questions and more information about Valley Transit District and its VTD2GO service, please visit or call the office phone number at 203-735-6824. Funding for this new service is provided by The Connecticut Department of Transportation.
