The Kennector- Powered by ITNCountry
As part of a 2 year pilot program and grant, the Town of Kennebunk is partnering with ITNAmerica to offer a local volunteer driver transportation program.
ITNCountry is a transportation platform specially designed for rural and small communities. ITNCountry has launched in 10 communities across the U.S. Kennebunk expects to launch its program, the Kennector, in 2022. Learn more about the Kennector here.
Volunteers are the heart of this program. We are recruiting drivers who will register and sign up based on their availability to drive people where they need to go. Read the Volunteer Description (PDF) and if you are interested to learn more or help out, sign up here!
The Town of Kennebunk, in partnership with York County Community Action Corporation (YCCAC), is pleased to provide an in-town bus route every Tuesday in Kennebunk. The KITT (Kennebunk In-Town Transportation) 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. KITT will pick riders up at centralized stops and drops 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 reserve a ride, call 207-967-8514.
MaineCare Services: Non-Emergency Transportation
MaineCare offers Non-Emergency Transportation (NET) for eligible members. You may be able to get a ride to your appointment or your ride reimbursed by MaineCare if the appointment is covered by MaineCare and you are eligible for transportation services.
