Q: I need an attendant; can they travel with me?
A: Yes, attendants can travel with the passenger free of charge. Just make sure you tell the dispatcher when you book that you will have an attendant with you.
Q: Will the driver wait for me?
A: We ensure you get home safely; the driver will either wait for you or will return to pick you up at the agreed time, depending on the arrangements you have made.
Q: How much will it cost and how do I pay?
A: Each organization has its own fee scale due to variability of funding sources. Contact your local provider for details.
Q: How are the RTA member organizations funded?
A: RTA organizations are supported in part by the Community Transportation Assistance Program (CTAP) or the Nova Scotia Transit Research Incentive Program (NS-TRIP) of the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage. On average CTAP funding provides around one fifth of the combined yearly budgets of our members. Donations are an integral part of member organizations overall operating budgets. Member providers also rely on partnerships with municipalities, local businesses, health care groups, fundraising and fares.
