Are you a senior who doesn't like to drive at night - so you miss a community event you'd love to attend? Or do you sometimes need a ride to go grocery shopping, get to an appointment or meet a friend? Quadra Circle's transportation program can help.
It is a FREE SERVICE to provide eligible people with a volunteer to drive them where they need to go on Quadra, and in Campbell River or Courtenay. All drivers are fully insured an have a completed Criminal Record Check on file.
Under the terms of our grants, the service is limited to Quadra Islanders who are seniors, frail, disabled, chronically physically or mentally unwell, or recovering from illness or surgery, and who need help to get to medical appointments, laboratories or hospitals, or to go grocery shopping, or to attend therapy/personal care appointments or community events or meet with a friend. Therapy includes yoga and exercise classes, massage, acupuncture, chiropractic, physiotherapy, etc. Personal care includes foot care, and dental and hair appointments etc.
If you are eligible to use the Volunteer Driver Service, you simply call the coordinator and request a driver when needed. Please give at minimum 24 hours (preferably 48 hours) notice for the coordinators to arrange a driver. If leaving a voicemail message, please give the date, time and location for which you need a driver, Please also be aware that a driver might not always be available.
For more information, or to request a driver, please call the coordinator Diana Gault at 250-285-3630 or email email@example.com
