Transportation services offer both in town and out of town drives for medical appointments, grocery shopping, banking, and personal errands. A volunteer driver will pick clients up at a pre-determined time at their home and will return them home once the trip is complete. We ask that clients provide a minimum of 24-48 hours’ notice. Clients are to reimburse volunteer drivers for the use of their vehicle. For local trips under five kilometers, clients reimburse the drivers $5.00 with $1.00 for each additional stop, plus any expenses incurred, unless the client requires a subsidy. When a trip is over five kilometers, the client reimburses the driver using the pre-arranged rates, with $5.00 for additional stop, plus any expenses incurred, unless the client requires a subsidy.
For subsidy information, please contact the EDS staff. An application and assessment will be required.
