Frontenac Transportation Services provides rides for adults, seniors and children living in North, Central and South Frontenac and Frontenac Islands. We work with the County to fulfil the County’s strategic goal of providing:
A safe, convenient, effective transportation system for all citizens of Frontenac County, including those citizens who do not have access to a personal vehicle.
The Frontenac Transportation Services (FTS) is a partnership between Rural Frontenac Community Services and Southern Frontenac Community Services to provide residents of Frontenac County’s rural communities with a cost-effective and sustainable transportation solution.
FTS is based on a unique business model wherein community members volunteer their time to drive other residents to medical appointments, day care, recreational complexes, etc. and are reimbursed for the cost of operating their vehicle.
Rides are dispatched from the Frontenac Transportation Office in Sharbot Lake.
We employ three part time staff who:
- Match ride requests with our volunteer drivers
- Assist clients in accessing travel subsidy
- Support high risk clients when issues are identified
- Manage the database, billing and driver reimbursement
If you find yourself needing transportation, or if you would like to join our team of volunteer drivers, please call Frontenac Transportation Services at 613-279-2044 or 1-877-279-2044 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
