Referral for Accessible Van Services

The Accessible Van Service (AVS) is a free service available to students, faculty, staff and the public. The service provides safe and timely campus and local transportation. Accessible vans are equipped with wheelchair ramps, ensuring that all passengers get to their classes, jobs, residences, and activities safely and efficiently.  Student passengers with permanent conditions or disabilities must register through the Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) by logging into the student MyAccess portal.

Arranging Pickups

At the beginning of each semester, the CSD provides a list of AVS permanent passengers, who are approved to use the AVS for the entire semester, to Transportation Services. Any additional approvals will also be communicated. The AVS offers pick-ups every 10 minutes throughout their hours of operation. There are specific pick-up locations for all campus buildings and local businesses, the details of which can be provided to you by any of the drivers or dispatchers.  

There are two ways for permanent passengers to arrange for pick-ups:  

  • Use this  online form to schedule your regular AVS rides 
  • You can also call the AVS as needed: 860-486-4991. Pick-ups are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please be aware that based on any days current schedule, unscheduled (call ahead) are not guaranteed.
