Calgary HandiBus is passionate about ensuring Calgarians with special needs can participate in and contribute to our city, and believe that transportation is a key factor in achieving this.
HandiBus vehicles provide transportation to people with a range of physical and cognitive disabilities, and seniors, who are unable to use regular public transportation with safety and dignity. Without accessible transportation, many of these individuals would be unable to attend appointments, get to work or school, to volunteering opportunities or out into the community. Accessible transportation ensures that all Calgarians, regardless of ability, are able to be full participants in our great city, and HandiBus is here to ensure this vital service is available for all who need it.We provide a voice in promoting safe, caring, and high quality specialized transportation for persons with disabilities. We raise funds to purchase highly specialized buses for our partner organizations that provide transportation to the disabled community. We work closely with Calgary Transit and other not-for-profit organizations to ensure that there are always vehicles on the road providing trips for Calgarians with special transportation needs.
Every year we purchase new buses at a cost of $90,000 each which are used to provide accessible transportation in Calgary. These buses are equipped with wheelchair lifts, special safety equipment, navigation systems and cameras to ensure clients are safe and comfortable.Bus Capital Donations
Each and every donation towards bus purchases, no matter the size, brings us closer to our goal and ensuring better accessible transportation in our city. When you support HandiBus you can see your donation at work every time you see a HandiBus on the road around our city!
Have you seen a HandiBus with a name or company logo on the side? Each of those generous donors has sponsored a bus. You can too! Donations of full, half and quarter buses are recognized with your name or chosen message on the side of a HandiBus and it will stay there for the lifetime of the vehicle.
Contact us today to see your name on a bus to show all of Calgary that you care about making a difference in the lives of people with disabilities.
