Transportation Services

Allow us to take you to your appointments in a safe, stress-free and organized manner. Or get your groceries & essential items delivered to your place.

Date: Monday - Friday

Time: 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

 

This service provides rides, pre-ordered grocery pick up & delivery to people in Peachland who can no longer drive and are unable to use public transit or the taxi service.

The PWC transportation service must not be used in the case of an emergency and cannot replace emergency services. If you are in need of emergency care dial 911.

Volunteer drivers use their own vehicles to drive residents of Peachland to appointments, shopping, banking, or to do grocery shopping pick up & delivery once the groceries have been ordered online by the participant, allowing individuals to stay longer in their own home and within the community.

PWC screens volunteers to ensure safety of everyone. 

Our drivers are volunteers giving of their own time. There is a suggested donation for our drivers to cover the cost of fuel. Other costs incurred, such as parking, are the participant's responsibility.
