What times are the pick ups?

Pick up times are based on your appointment time and destination. A general rule of thumb is 30 minutes prior to appointment time for destinations within Trenton and 45 minutes prior for destinations outside of Trenton (e.g. Belleville). Please note that this time could change depending on the schedule of requests for the day. If you are unsure of your pick-up time, call the office after 12 p.m. the day before to confirm your time. Pick-up times can vary 15 minutes before or after the schedule time. Be prepared for your pick-up 15 minutes before the scheduled time.

Where do you go?

The specialized service travels to all wards within the City of Quinte West and the Municipality of Brighton. We can travel into Belleville and Prince Edward County. Should you have medical appointments outside of these areas, please contact the office to inquire about eligibility and availability.

Can I request a particular driver or vehicle?

You can request a particular vehicle and/or driver. However, this may not always be accommodated due to scheduling.
