Transportation Options Network for Seniors (TONS) teams up with ride-hailing service to get Manitobans to vaccination appointments
TONS is proud to partner with Uber Canada to distribute 1800 trip promotion codes to community organizations serving seniors to ensure that those who need transportation to get to vaccine sites in Winnipeg will have a safe and subsidized way to get there
TONS has provided Uber promotional codes to 13 of our Senior Resource Finder community partners who are the gatekeepers to information and resources in their respected community areas and who will ensure that these vouchers will get to who need it most. TONS is extremely grateful for this partnership with Uber Canada and for our community partners who are working hard to support Seniors in Winnipeg.
“Transportation shouldn’t be a barrier to vaccination. Uber Canada is proud to work with the Transportation Options Network for Seniors (TONS) and play our part to provide underserved communities in Winnipeg with a safe, convenient and accessible means of transportation to get to and from a vaccine site,” said Matthew Price, General Manager of Uber Canada.
If you have an upcoming vaccine appointment booked, all eligible seniors are asked to call their local senior resource finder which is listed here: https://wrha.mb.ca/files/seniors-resource-finders.pdf
