Transportation Services

Transportation is a necessity and a particular challenge for those living in rural settings.

ROSSS’ transportation service is for individuals who can transfer safely and independently (or with minimal assistance) into a vehicle. Wheelchair transportation is also available. We employ screened and trained volunteers and staff drivers to help you reach your destination.

Transportation is provided for medical appointments, or for personal, social and basic shopping trips. Please note that during busy times, priority is given to medical appointments.

We also offer grocery buses to some of our local shopping centers, and individual grocery shopping trips may also be arranged.

For more information or to book transportation, please call 613-692-4697 ext. 241 or email scheduling@rosss.ca
