Do you need transportation to an important medical or dental appointment? If you do not have any others means of transportation, we will be happy to assist you. Give us 48 hours' notice and we will do our very best to find the right person to drive you there. However, please note that although we are confident that we will be able to arrange transportation for you, it is not guaranteed as it depends on the availability of volunteers.
There is a small fee for this service that will vary depending on the distance to your medical appointment. The Coordinator, Senior and Volunteer Services will give you the exact amount when you call for transportation. Also, users are required to pay for parking fees if necessary so that the volunteer driving them does not have to assume that expense.
Community members in need of this service must make arrangements through MCDC. MCDC will not reimburse the volunteer's traveling expenses unless the trip was pre-approved by the Coordinator, Senior and Volunteer Services.
If no English-speaking volunteers are available, we can refer you to a French community group that provides transportation to medical appointments on your territory. However, there is a strong possibility that the volunteer driving you will not speak English. Also, their fee schedule may be different from that of MCDC.
