​YRT's Mobility On-Request (MOR) 65+ service allows you to request transit when and where you need it
YRT is extending service for seniors across York Region to April 30, 2021

The service is available to seniors 65 years or older who may be feeling hesitant taking regular public transit during the COVID-19 pandemic. Mobility On-Request uses smaller vehicles like sedans, minivans and small buses to transport customers. Vehicles are thoroughly cleaned, drivers are equipped with proper PPE and there is a limit to the number of passengers allowed in the vehicles at once.

If you are a senior travelling within its service areas, simply call YRT  and they will pick you up and take you to your desired location within 5 km of your home. This can be a grocery store, doctor’s office, pharmacy or any other address. Please read below for more details and booking instructions.
