Transportation Services & Medical Equipment Loans
Transportation is essential for older adults to maintain their independence and
quality of life. Older adults’ transportation options include shared ride services,
public transportation, or volunteer programs. Many Senior Resource Coordinators/
Community Resource Coordinators offer or know of local volunteer-based senior
transportation programs. These programs are often dependent on the availability
of volunteers, and it is important to contact them for updated information on
eligibility and availability.
For a complete listing of local transit options, please phone 211 or download your
regional resource guide at mb.211.ca.
