Transportation Services

Transportation is a necessity and a particular challenge for those living in rural settings.
ROSSS’ transportation program helps remove challenges and barriers to getting around, to wherever that may be: medical, personal, social or basic shopping.

We employ screened volunteers and paid drivers to help you reach your destination locally or in the urban centre.

We also offer shopping buses to urban and local shopping centres from various pick-up points throughout the rural south area, including Metcalfe, Greely, Osgoode, Manotick and North Gower.

Please call ROSSS at 613-692-4697 for all your transportation needs.
