A New Transporation Option Comes to Simsbury

Finding reliable transportation can often be a struggle for seniors and adults with physical disabilities.  New Horizons, a local nonprofit organization, recently expanded its Sunshine Wheels transportation operation in order to meet the growing need for this important service.  Opening up a second headquarters location in Simsbury in addition to its Unionville office has allowed the organization to expand its reach. “The pandemic has created enormous challenges and being able to access critical medical care through reliable transportation has never been more important”, stated Carol Fitzgerald, New Horizons’ CEO.  With a fleet of wheelchair accessible vans, Sunshine Wheels has provided thousands of essential rides during this challenging time.

Residents of Simsbury, Granby, and the surrounding towns now have the opportunity to book transportation through Sunshine Wheels.  “The Farmington Valley has desperately needed more options when it comes to transportation and Sunshine Wheels has done a wonderful job with providing this service”, stated David Bordonaro, CEO of McLean.

The organization’s deep commitment to providing reliable transportation to adults with mobility challenges is rooted in over 30 years of experience.  Whether it is a trip to the grocery store or a ride to a critical medical appointment, Sunshine Wheels is available to help. Visit or call 860-507-7704 in order to learn more.

Getting The Word Out

Sunshine Wheels participated in the Connecticut Association of Health Facilities annual conference and trade show.  The need for reliable and accessible transportation was clearly evident at the conference.  Every part of the state is complaining about the shortage of quality transportation.  Sunshine Wheels is stepping up to meet this important need in the Farmington Valley.  On December 16th, we will be expanding beyond our existing facilities – New Horizons Village and Cherry Brook. We will be utilizing our 32 years of transportation experience as we provide rides to other living facilities this coming week.  Sunshine Wheels is proud to be a solution!



A Time of Thanksgiving

Shorter days and cooler weather is a reminder that the year is coming to an end.  As my favorite holiday approaches, gratitude has been on my heart and mind.  The Thanksgiving season gives me time to reflect on how fortunate Sunshine Wheels is to have faithful supporters like you.

I am thankful that you wholeheartedly believe in our mission.

I am grateful for your encouragement and support year after year.

We could not do it without you!

Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!  Thank you for all that you do.
