CTCL delivers an essential service to rural seniors, persons with disabilities, and other individuals. We provide transportation to medical appointments, stores, businesses, social engagements, school, and employment as well as offering small charters. Although anyone can use our service and we transport people of all ages, seniors currently make up 70 percent of our riders.
VISION: to ensure that residents of Colchester County get where they need to go.
MISSION: to provide an efficient, reliable, quality transportation service meeting the needs of the citizens of Colchester County.
Working with municipal and provincial partners, CTCL provides a valuable service and fills an important gap in community services while helping to support isolated and marginalized community members. As a safe, affordable and accessible community transportation service, CTCL provides access not only to essential services but also to recreational and social and cultural activities.
We work to connect our clients to their communities. By providing them transportation we help break down social barriers and build community partnerships that help keep people living in their homes longer.We look forward to continued growth and increased service for the residents of Colchester County.
