The iRIDE Difference

Illness or frailty can make everyday tasks, such as scheduled medical appointments or shopping, a challenge. iRIDEPlus, our government subsidized transportation service, helps older adults get around safely and affordably. We offer:

  • Scheduled rides
  • Fares based on distance
  • Downtown Toronto hospital service
  • Clean, comfortable vehicles; friendly, trained drivers
  • Monthly billing (subsidies may be available)
  • A broad service area
