Toronto Ride is a collaborative partnership of thirteen not-for-profit, community support service agencies providing transportation services to seniors 55+ and adults with disabilities who are not eligible for Wheel-Trans. Transportation services are provided Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm.
When an agency is unable to fulfill a ride request, the request is sent out to all the other Toronto Ride partners agencies. In this way, Toronto Ride facilitates the sharing of transportation resources to best meet the needs of our clients.
Due to increasing demands and limited resources, Toronto Ride may still be not be able to accommodate every transportation request.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE? Toronto Ride provides assisted door-to-door transportation to seniors 55+ and adults with disabilities who are not eligible for Wheel-Trans. Clients must:
Be able to enter and exit our vehicles with limited assistance;

The City of Toronto's boundaries are approximately Steeles Avenue to the north, the Lake Ontario to the south, Highway 427 to the west, and the Pickering Town Line to the east.
