Overview

Do you need some help with transportation needs?  We operate 3 services that may help:

  • Door-to-Door - using volunteer drivers
  • Rural-to-Urban - with multi-passenger vans
  • Specialized Options - for accessible needs

Our programs transport people to destinations for medical appointments, social outings, banking, recreational purposes and other activities of daily living for those who cannot drive themselves.  View each section for more detailed information on each program to see which might be right for you or your loved one.


Door-to-Door:  Volunteer Driver Service

This service is available to seniors and adults with disabilities, or adults recovering from illness or injury.  Our volunteer drivers are licensed to drive in Ontario, carry their own insurance and are screened through our volunteer recruitment process. License and insurance records are updated annually. 

Volunteer drivers provide transportation to medical appointments, treatments, community services, shopping, banking, grocery shopping or to social and recreational activities.  A per kilometre or flat rate reimbursement for drivers’ out of pocket expenses such as fuel, insurance, and vehicle maintenance is paid by the client or the client's coverage directly to the volunteer.  Volunteer drivers do not receive payment for their time – this is their generous gift to the community.


Rural-to-Urban: Rural Service

Working with the Northumberland County and several local municipalities, the goal of this service is to offer rural transportation within Northumberland County that is affordable and accessible.  Operating like a rural bus system, youth, families, adults or seniors can use this service to travel from the rural parts of the County into the more urban areas of the County.  Rides could be so that you can attend: appointments, meetings, work, school, social, shopping, or recreational activities.
