Our Transportation Services aim to connect people to their community by providing safe, affordable, accessible door-to-door transportation options.
adVANtage is a transportation service that focuses on connecting people to their community to reduce social isolation. The accessible vehicle can accommodate up to 9 passengers at a time: 2 passengers using wheelchairs and 7 walk on passengers. All transportation fares are based on passengers’ ability to pay. Rates operate on a sliding scale and are determined by filling out the Application for Service and providing proof of combined gross household income.
Eligible passengers are:
rural and/or low-income people ages 0 to 60;
unable to access existing public transit systems, unable to drive, or afford private transportation;
able to pay a fee for transportation services or qualify for third party invoicing;
able to ride safely and independently in a vehicle.
If a passenger needs assistance or is under the age of 18, a family member or caregiver over age 18 must accompany them, free of charge.
As the result of a new partnership with the Blenheim Rotary Club, Family Service Kent is now also able to provide drives to destinations outside of Chatham-Kent for passengers 0-60.
