The University of Alberta’s Medically At-Risk Driver Centre
(MARD) is seeking proposals from rural municipalities or rural-based community organizations to work with MARD to implement a sustainable model of alternate transportation for seniors and persons with disabilities. The pilot project will be based on the Transportation Toolkit for the Implementation of Alternate Transportation for Seniors in Alberta
, which was recently completed by MARD and based in part on input provided by the AAMDC and other stakeholders.
The goal of the pilot is to validate the effectiveness of the toolkit as a resource for rural communities. MARD will work with the successful applicant in developing and implementing an alternate transportation service.
