This project introduces a specialized transportation service to anyone within the broad geographic area surrounding Calgary. The model will give rural seniors the option to continue living in their communities, and will allow persons with disabilities to live and work in a rural setting. The new service will be coordinated with existing non-profit specialized transportation providers to avoid duplication and streamline operations.
