Community Care Transportation
Are you in need of a ride? Community Care Northumberland’s transportation program can help you get where you need to be. Whether you need to attend a medical or dental appointment, run errands or go to a social or recreational activity, we offer affordable and accessible transportation services that can help.
“Thank you so much for being there for us. You have helped us numerous times with transportation for medical and surgery appointments. Do not know what we would do without your assistance!”
This service provides accessible transportation for youth, adults or seniors who have mobility challenges or special needs and are residents of Northumberland County. Transportation is available for appointments (medical drives take priority), meetings, shopping, and social and recreational activities.
We strive to make all transportation dependable, reliable and economical, without barriers for accessible service.
We provide approximately 6000 accessible trips per year. This program is made possible by partnerships with Northumberland County, Hamilton Township, Cramahe Township, Alnwick/Haldimand Township, the Municipality of Trent Hills and the Municipality of Port Hope.

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 reimbursement of $0.50/kilometre 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.
