Manitoulin Angel Bus
What is the Angel Bus?
The Angel Bus is a wheel-chair accessible bus for use by adults on Western Manitoulin Island in need of accessible transportation. While donations are always most appreciated, there is no charge to ride the Angel Bus. Since it's inception in April 2015, the volunteer Angel Bus Committee continues to raise money for operation of the Angel Bus by hosting an annual "Spring Wing Ding" dance in Kagawong in May; through check-out donations from Dean's Valu Mart in Gore Bay; and by very generous private and corporate donations. Supporters who annually donate $1,000 or more are proudly displayed on the sides of the Angel Bus. Thanks to tremendous Community support for keeping the Angel Bus rollin'!
How to Use the Angel Bus:
If you find yourself in need of accessible transportation, and you live west of an imaginary line through Providence Bay, Mindemoya, M'Chigeeng and Kagawong, please call our volunteer dispatcher, Shirley, at 705-282-7732. Shirley will take down the particulars of your trip, then try to coordinate Angel Bus use, Driver availability, and your appointment time. Currently we have over 12 Volunteer Drivers. You must arrange to have an able bodied escort accompany the person in need of accessible transportation. Our Drivers do not lift passengers and while driving they are unable to offer assistance to passengers. Our Drivers are trained to safely load, secure, and unload passengers.
