MusGo Rider cars and vans are a familiar sight along the Eastern Shore. They can be seen driving clients to medical appointments, work, training, errands, or grocery shopping. The service is available to anyone who lives in the communities. For those with cost as a barrier, there are fare reduction programs.
Did you know there are two services provided along the Eastern Shore? One is MusGo Rider Cooperative Ltd. for people travelling in the areas of Lawrencetown/East Preston to Ship Harbour, staying inside the boundaries of Halifax Regional Municipality. The other is MusGo Valley-Sheet Harbour for anyone travelling in the areas of West Ship Harbour to EcumSecum and the Musquodoboit Valley to anywhere in Nova Scotia.
MusGo Valley-Sheet Harbour is currently reviewing its services over the past five years. To move forward, we want to find out how we could better serve our communities. Is more communication needed? Do people know about the service exists? Do they know everyone and anyone qualifies? Do they know there are fare reduction options available?
Some of the other questions we are looking at include:
Are youth being served MusGo Valley-Sheet Harbour?
Are seniors being served by MusGo Valley-Sheet Harbour?
Is transportation to your workplace a challenge?
Is transportation preventing you from being involved in your community?
Are you lonely in the community?
Do you have access to food?
Is lack of transportation impacting your or a family member’s health?
MusGo Valley-Sheet Harbour is eager to hear from you! The MusGo Valley-Sheet Harbour team is gathering information this fall. The information will be used to make a business plan in early 2023. This is a great opportunity to share your ideas!
