May 7, 2015
SYDNEY, NS – An increase to Handi Trans services will improve and extend the service for eligible residents.
Forty hours of service per week have been added to Handi Trans. Previously, the service operated until 10 pm from Wednesday through Saturday. With the changes, the service now runs until midnight, Wednesday to Saturday. In addition, the service now operates on Sundays from 9 am until 7 pm. Before the changes, Handi Trans was not available at all on Sundays.
"This expands the level of service and increases options to those whose mobility was limited due to operating hours," said Mayor Cecil Clarke. "The operators of our Handi Trans do a phenomenal job of supporting our customers. They care about the people they serve. This improvement allows them more opportunity to add to the quality of life for residents with disabilities."
