News Release

Starting Monday, April 27, Milton Transit will offer seniors aged 65 plus door-to-door transit service to grocery stores and pharmacies during dedicated senior hours. The Town recognizes that not all seniors have supports or assistance to attain these necessary items, so this new service implementation will support seniors by providing safe, essential travel during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’re offering this service to ensure seniors in our community can access essential services, worry-free,” said Tony D’Alessandro, Manager, Milton Transit. “During these uncertain times, we want to provide seniors safe transportation service they can rely on.”

Scheduling a trip:

  • Call Milton access+ at 905-875-5417 before 5:30 p.m. to book a trip for the next day (Note: For a trip on Monday, a booking must be made by 5:30 p.m. on the Saturday before)

Scheduling periods (when you can book a trip) 

  • Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. 
  • No service available on Sundays or statutory holidays

To maintain physical distancing measures, there is a maximum of two people per trip. Milton Transit is not collecting fares until further notice.
