The Town of Okotoks offers two subsidized transportation services to residents including the Community Access (Taxi) program and the Volunteer Driver program. Eligible residents may access certain Town-operated programs and services at a reduced cost or for free.

Community Access Program

Subsidized Transportation for Seniors and Adults with Permanent Disabilities

The Town of Okotoks wishes to ensure that Okotoks residents who are seniors (60 years of age and over) and adults with permanent disabilities are able to remain active participants in the community. A subsidy is provided to a contracted taxi company for each trip taken and provides users with a reduced taxi fare.

Volunteer Driver Program

The Volunteer Driver Program is a supportive program for adults (18+) living in Okotoks who require assistance with transportation to medical appointments outside the local area. In 2019, volunteer drivers logged over 14,000 km driving grateful residents to appointments! 

Volunteer Drivers provide safe, free and reliable transportation for residents who would otherwise struggle to meet this need.
