Three volunteer drive programs — Tele-Drive Albert County, Rural Rides and the Volunteer Centre of Southeastern New Brunswick Inc. Drive Program — have amalgamated to serve more communities in Westmorland County and Albert County.
“The natural progression of this process is to amalgamate services under one umbrella,” said Kirstin Shortt, President of Urban/Rural Rides.
Volunteer driving programs have proven to be a solution to an issue all too prevalent in Southeast New Brunswick, added Taylor. “This is particularly true in rural areas where the sheer magnitude of area and sparsity of population makes traditional public transportation and for-profit transportation sources costs prohibitive, leaving many without access to transportation.”
