Medical Transportation

Volunteers provide rides to medical appointments from Abbotsford to neighboring communities

Medical Transportation

This program helps Abbotsford residents get to medical appointments located outside of the city. Volunteer drivers take clients as far east as Chilliwack and as far west as North Vancouver. Volunteers pick clients up from their homes, drive them to their appointments, wait for them there, and then drive them back home.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Clients must be a resident of Abbotsford

  • To start using the program please call or email us. You can expect a response within a week.
  • Once you’re in the program, please provide as much notice as possible of your appointments so we can address your transportation needs and process your request to the best of our ability.
  • Please be aware that there is a per km fee for this service.
  • Volunteers are available to drive Monday to Friday from 8:00am – 4:30pm.

“If it wasn’t for this program, I wouldn’t be able to get to my specialist appointments every 3 months. I am so grateful!”

“Driving with this volunteer was a wonderful experience! He is a very nice guy, he has a wonderful personality, I am so glad to have met him.”

Featured Volunteer Driver – Sandy

In the past 10 years, Sandy has driven over 100 people to hundreds of medical appointments in the Lower Mainland. He puts thought into what people need, and feels responsible for them from the time he picks them up until he drops them back home. Read More
