New! December 2019: The Town of Kennebunk announces a new partnership with York County Community Action Corporation (YCCAC) to provide an in-town bus route every Tuesday in Kennebunk with KITT (Kennebunk In-Town Transportation). This service is currently limited to a flex route in Downtown Kennebunk, and is separate from the privately run Intown Trolley, which operates sightseeing tours in the Kennebunkport/Lower Village/Beaches area.
Currently YCCAC provides a "Local Rides" curb-to-curb service (PDF) by advance reservation for Kennebunk residents needing to travel to Biddeford for medical appointments and shopping every Wednesday.
Beginning this December, an additional day of transportation every Tuesday will be provided in Kennebunk via a flex route, picking people up at centralized stops and dropping off at various locations in Kennebunk such as Hannaford, Shopper’s Village, Downtown and the Library.
The Center, located at 175 Port Road in Lower Village, offers a volunteer driving transportation called FISH (Friends In Service Helping). Volunteer drivers provide rides to Kennebunk, Kennebunkport and Arundel residents who need to get to medical appointments. Riders may use FISH Transportation when they have no other means (friends, family) of getting to an appointment.This service is not meant to handle repetitive appointments for life sustaining procedures or clients in wheelchairs as volunteers are not trained to handle that type of transport. Drivers prefer morning and early afternoon appointments.
To request a ride, please review the FISH program procedures (PDF) and contact The Center at (207) 502-2895. Please register as a rider (PDF) and provide at least four business days advance notice of your appointment.
