Northern Health’s Connections program is pumping the brakes on its regularly scheduled routes this holiday season.
The shuttle service takes patients to medical appointments across BC.
Northern Health’s Patient Transporation Coordinator Maureen Haley says demand drops this time of year.
“Lots of health care practitioners aren’t practicing during the holiday season so we really take this opportunity to give the drivers some much needed time off and gets some much needed extra maintenance for the buses as well.”
A new modified schedule will run between the 20th and January 7th. The booking centre is still open during this time except on statutory holidays (December 26th, and January 2nd).
If you need to book a trip, Northern Health asks you to call the booking centre at 1-888-647-4997 or e-mail them directly.
