Do you need a lift or know someone who does?
Our friendly, reliable, door-to-door accessible transportation service is available seven days a week for Caledon seniors and people with disabilities who are unable to drive on their own. Trips to medical appointments, weekly grocery shopping, visit to family and to the Seniors Centre are all opportunities for clients to stay active and connected in their community. Rides are provided in either a wheelchair accessible bus, a passenger van, or by car with one of our many dedicated volunteers.
