Carman's hugely popular Handi-Van service continues to play a vital role in the community.

"In 2016 we did over 7,000 one way rides within Carman. If you break that down it's about a ride every fifteen minutes," explained Handi-Van administrator Kathy Findlay.

The transportation service is so popular, the staff at Carman Physiotherapy took notice, literally seeing the van drive by their office every day.

Staff were so impressed by the service they recently made a $500 donation to the cause.

Findlay says they are very grateful for the donation which helps keep the service like the Handi-Van available to the residents who need it.

Each year the Carman Handi-Van also receives a $20,000 Mobility Disadvantage Transportation Program grant. The program also receives support through sponsors and bequests.
