In partnership with the Region of Peel, Uber Canada is donating 1,500, 2-way free trips to vaccine clinics, valued at $50 each. This initiative is part of Peel’s Transportation Assistance Program (TAP), which aims to remove transportation barriers that might prevent residents from getting a COVID-19 vaccine.
Peel is working with grass-roots community agencies to distribute the Uber vouchers to Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon residents with limited transportation options or who cannot afford transportation to vaccination appointments.
As part of the TAP, TransHelp also continues to offer free, fully accessible, door-to-door travel for residents of any age who need transportation to get their vaccine. Residents can call 905-791-1015 between 8 a.m. and midnight, 7 days a week, to book a TransHelp trip. Trips to a vaccination clinic must be booked two days in advance of the scheduled vaccine appointment.
