Support Advance Transit

Advance Transit is a not-for-profit charitable organization. Donations are tax deductible as allowed by law. Your contribution will help Advance Transit continue to serve the residents of the Upper Valley.

Why Donate?

AT makes a difference by providing more than a half million rides each year. Out of AT riders, 69% use AT to get to work and 47% do not have a car.
Advance Transit makes a difference in our community:

  • AT reduces traffic by 240,000 auto trips per year, eliminating more than 1.2 million vehicle miles.
  • AT reduces demand for limited parking.
  • AT reduces pollution. AT’s new buses have 95% less nitrogen oxide emissions and 90% less particulates compared with standard diesels. New hybrid buses will result in even better fuel economy and less pollution.

“In the past, we have contributed to AT even though we were not using it – simply because we wanted to support this integral part of the high quality of life available in the Upper Valley. Now that we are using the ACCESS AT (paratransit) we want to do more…because we feel the money we contribute has the potential to not only help many less fortunate than ourselves, but to serve other purposes as well, not the least of which would be the environment.”
