Northern Health medical bus service set for gradual return

(Files by Justin Madu-MyPGNow)

Starting on June 1st, the Northern Health Connections bus service will go back to standard eligibility, with one key exception.

Passengers eligible to use the bus service include:

  • Those travelling for non-urgent medical procedures, such as chiropractors and massage therapists – although an appointment verification will be required
  • Discharges (by health authority hospital staff) – appointment verification not required
  • Medically-necessary companions
  • Staff & Physicians (including health care students), who are travelling for work

However, the service will not be available for passengers travelling without a medical appointment including seniors.

Northern Health Connections will continue to run with limited seating and enhanced safety measures until further notice.
