MusGo Rider is a not-for-profit community cooperative that provides wheelchair accessible transportation within our community. Our service is door-to-door and we request trips be pre-booked at least one business day in advance of travel.
We serve Eastern Shore neighbourhoods extending from East Preston and Lawrencetown in the west, through to Ship Harbour in the east.
Our goal is to provide a safe, affordable and dependable transportation solution to improve the quality of life of our residents. Our primary target market are persons with disabilities, economically disadvantaged, seniors and those with limited or no access to a vehicle but the service is open to everyone that lives in the area served. MusGo will provide transportation anywhere within Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM).
MusGo Rider started operating in October 2012 with a 5 passenger mini-van. In December 2013 the van was converted to wheelchair accessible. In May 2015 we added a Toyota Corolla to better serve the needs of our clients.
In order to ensure fares remain low, major funding for our capital and operating costs are provided by Service Nova Scotia. Additional funding is provided by Halifax Regional Municipality.
