Volunteer-Based Community Transportation Program

The Fundy Regional Service Commission is proud to be partnering with Urban/Rural Rides to provide this service to the Fundy Region.


Volunteer-based community transportation programs are essential for addressing transportation challenges faced by individuals who lack access to reliable transportation options to access services.

At this point, as we are growing and restructuring this program, we plan to expand to all areas in the Fundy Region by mid 2024. If you live in an area in the Fundy Region that would benefit from a program like this, we would love to hear from you!

Connect with the Community Development Coordinator Catherine Paulin.


Significance of Volunteer-Based Community Transportation:

  1. Social Impact: Volunteer-based programs contribute to improved social connectivity by enabling individuals, in particular, seniors and those with mobility issues, to access essential services, and health related appointments. As well, this program can create a strong sense of connection between community members.
  2. Community Engagement: These programs foster a sense of community engagement by involving volunteers who are dedicated to helping their neighbours and contributing to the well-being of their community


  1. Flexibility: Volunteer drivers can provide flexible schedules and door-to-door services, catering to the specific needs of passengers.
  2. Personalized Care: Volunteers often offer a more personalized and compassionate experience, ensuring the comfort and safety of passengers.
  3. Expanded Reach: Volunteer-based services can reach areas that are not covered by traditional public transportation routes.
