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
