The University of Alberta’s Medically At-Risk Driver Centre (MARD) is seeking proposals from rural municipalities and/or rural-based community organizations to work with MARD to develop a regional alternate transportation for seniors (ATS) service in a remote area in Alberta.

The expectation is that this regional ATS service will consist of two or more organizations in a defined region in rural Alberta interacting to jointly accomplish their transportation objectives through the development of a coordinated model of ATS service delivery.

The goal of the pilot is to successfully develop and/or implement a regional ATS service in a rural area in Alberta. MARD will disseminate the learnings from this project to local, regional, and provincial stakeholders.

For details including eligibility criteria, project objectives, timelines and funding, view the request for proposal overview.
