On July 1st Lumacare’s transportation services underwent a transformation. We have joined a collaborative, led by Circle of Care (in the south) and CHATS (in the north), called iRidePlus.

iRidePlus provides an easy and affordable way to get around the neighbourhood and across the city. We are committed to meeting the diverse needs of our clients safely and in comfort.
