Social transport services

Social transport services

Social transport is meant for people whose disability hinders the use of a personal vehicle or public transport as is established in the assessment of need for care. The purpose of the service is to offer suitable transport for people with disabilities so that they can travel to necessary places.

Depending on their needs, people can use:

  • regular service;
  • occasional service; or
  • taxi service. The user of a regular or an occasional service will register every ride with an electronic public transport pass or a taxi pass in the case of taxi service.
