The CRC is a member of Wellington Transportation Services, a network of service providers who believe every resident of Wellington County should have access to safe transportation. This program connects individuals and families with volunteer drivers to ensure they get to critical or necessary services.
To be eligible for the CRC’s Transportation program, clients must have no other means of transportation and be on a low income. In addition, clients must not be eligible for transport with other service providers. Those who do not meet our eligibility requirements will be referred to the appropriate agency within the Wellington Transportation Services network.
Who can access this service?
Residents of Centre Wellington, Wellington North, Minto Township, and Mapleton Township can access this service.
What is the cost?
There is no cost to use this service. CRC’s Transportation program uses volunteer drivers who have their mileage reimbursed by the County of Wellington.
