Salt Spring Seniors Centre
The Drivers Program:
Requests are usually received from local residents for drives to the doctors (often eye doctors) in Victoria, Saanich, Duncan, and Nanaimo. The dispatcher then coordinates to find a volunteer driver willing to do the drive. It is reported that a good many satisfied customers agree it is an excellent service with no cost to the passenger(s). Drivers are paid according to the BC Government travel guidelines, if not in cash, then in a charitable donation receipt for the same amount. It is considered a paltry sum for the work involved.
You are welcome to make a booking by calling the Drivers desk directly or the office.
Drivers desk hours: Monday to Friday, 10am-2pm
Drivers desk direct line: 250-537-4635 or Office: 250-537-4604
