West Hants Dial-a-Ride is a call-ahead transportation service for residents of West Hants. Our riders use our service for such diverse trips as medical appointments, to meet friends/family, educational opportunities, or a trip shopping or to pick up groceries.
We offer accessible door-to-door service for all residents of West Hants Regional Municipality, Hantsport and Mount Uniacke for medical appointments, personal errands and business, and social, recreational and educational opportunities.
BoLT drives set routes around West Hants, much like a bus service. Staffed by volunteer drivers using their own reliable personal vehicles, this set route picks up riders and drops them off at pre-determined locations. It’s another way that Dial-a-Ride is helping members of our community get where they need to go.
* NOTE: This service has not yet begun. We are currently working on Covid-19 practices and procedures in order to move forward.
Our service is available to anyone in our catchment area who needs transportation.
