The Seniors Community Shopping and Events Trips Program provides round-trip transportation for weekly shopping and event trips. It is designed for those who:
- are independently mobile (may use a walker or cane)
- would not qualify for the DARTS program through Accessible Transportation Services
- do not have a cognitive diagnosis (e.g. dementia, alzheimers)
- do not have easy access to transporation (e.g. bus, taxi, car).
We use D.A.R.T.S. Transit or Blueline Taxi (depending on the amount of participants) to pick up clients at their door/entrance and transports them to Limeridge Mall, Ancaster Fortinos, Ancaster WalMart, or Ancaster Longo’s for the Friday shopping trips. There are also special events throughout the month added for weekly social outings. This program is currently provided free of charge. Clients may bring a bundle buggie or walker (please inform office).
Clients who wish to take the shopping bus must call our office at (905) 648-6675 at least two days before the trip. Our office will call you the day before the trip with the pick-up time.
Thanks to a Ministry of Transportation (Ontario) Grant, we are currently able to offer the Shopping and Events Bus Program for free.
Please note: Clients do not need to be registered with D.A.R.T.S to qualify for the Shopping and Events Bus program.
Space is very limited and on a first come, first served basis.
To register, please call us at 905-648-6675 to complete an over-the-phone registration.
