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.

A minimum of 3 business days’ notice is required for all transportation bookings. Rides are booked on a first-come first-served basis.

Note that all new clients must undergo a telephone assessment prior to receiving transportation services.

For more information or to book transportation, please call 613-692-4697 ext. 237 or email
