CARE DRIVERS & VEHICLES
Our drivers are experienced professional commercial vehicle operators. They are trained in first aid/CPR and undergo extensive background criminal checks. They receive sensitivity training and are hired as much for their friendly people skills as for their driving abilities. This means our clients enjoy both a smooth safe ride and the company of a caring compassionate driver.
Head Driver (and President of Care Medical Transport Ltd.) – Trond Halle
Trond began his driving career as an armoured vehicle driving instructor for the Canadian Forces and has since guided international travelers on tours of the Rockies, entertained students as a school bus driver and even spent two years driving 49,000 kilometers to the bottom of South America. He likes to work with people and support his community. An avid mountain biker and motorcyclist, Trond is proud to make Cumberland and the Comox Valley his new home.
Our passengers enjoy our luxurious Chrysler Town & Country Limited van, which has been specially adapted for wheelchair users with a ramp and lowered floor (maximum wheelchair width = 29″ or 740 mm). A removable front passenger seat means our clients can sit up front with the driver for the best view of the road – a welcome change for wheelchair users too often stuck in the back of taxis and buses (some conditions apply). A leather interior, a DVD entertainment system and individual climate controls ensure our clients arrive at their destination relaxed and refreshed.
