Resident Help & Volunteers

We’re Sorry

As our COVID world unrolls, it has been necessary to disband our BGCC volunteer driving service.  We are grateful to the many drivers and phone volunteers who have donated many hours since 2010.  However, over past years other services have become available.  We hope that the following list will be useful to you:

  • Drive to medical appointments and other needs:

    • ROUTES  www.routes        1-905-722-4616   You must register once and call several days ahead.
    • Both agencies have paid admin. staff to make arrangements but use volunteer drivers.  There is a small fee for service (mileage, parking etc.)
  • Stouffville bus service has a route available to pick you up at your door and deliver you to one of five places in Stouffville.  The service works in the mornings and evenings.  You must call two hours ahead. It may be a shared ride.  The bus stops at 5 places in Stouffville only: Walmart mall, No Frills, Stouffville GO station, public library and leisure centre, Tenth line at Shoppers Drug Front door.  Cost is $4.25, exact change or Presto card.   Call  1-844-667-5327
