VRT has launched Beyond Access, a new regional service for adults aged 60+ and persons with disabilities. Beyond Access will provide no-cost, shared-ride, curb-to-curb transportation for those who qualify Monday…
The Municipality of Crowsnest Pass is making it easier for disabled and senior residents with low annual income to access essential services.
Its subsidized taxi service offers rides on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. to help with daily needs, transporting applicants to medical appointments and visits to the bank, hairdresser, post office and retail stores.
Prices are affordable: $4 to be picked up from home, $4 to be returned and $1 for additional stops.
Disabled individuals or persons over 60 years of age looking to use the service must prove they have an annual income under $30,000 if single or under $48,000 with a spouse or partner. They must submit an application to the municipality with proof of residency and income.
