We Help You Get Around!

Safe and affordable transportation is the key to independent living for many older adults and frail elderly living in Huron and Perth County.

EasyRide™ is a transportation service shared by Community Support agencies across Huron & Perth counties. By teaming up and sharing our vehicles and drivers we can offer frequent and flexible door to door service. One number phone number to the Easyride™ service will get you door to door.

 

EasyRide™ is available for appointments, shopping, errands or social activities. Transportation is provided in and out of town using agency-owned vehicles (buses, accessible vans and caravans), as well as taxis and volunteers in their own vehicles.

The service is available 7 days a week. Booking hours are Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
