Transportation Services

Getting around, especially for seniors with health and mobility issues, can be a daunting challenge.

The provincially run Better at Home program offers subsidized driving and light housekeeping services. Those with incomes under $30,000 receive a pro-rated reduced rate.

Many BC communities offer a variety of seniors’ bus programs which are free or low-cost, as does TransLink BC with its HandyCard and TaxiSaver vouchers. For those undergoing cancer treatments, the Freemasons run a Cancer-Car program. Another door-to-door regional service is HandyDART.

If you or someone you know is driving and may be a danger to themselves or others, DriveABLE offers self-assessments and other advice.
