Rock Lake Handy Van Services

The Rock Lake Handy Van must adhere to the current Manitoba COVID-19 Public Health Orders meaning seats per trip are limited and masks are required. For group outings Immunization Cards are requested.

The Rock Lake Handy Van operates with funds from the Manitoba Government, the Municipality of Louise and client user fees and is run by a Council Board. Due to escalating costs and the lack of availability of approved drivers the fees are as follows:

1. User Fees - $1.00/ km with a $20 minimum to include a 1-hour wait/ layover time per trip. One way trips outside the Municipality charge $1 per km to a  destination (minimum of $20) plus $20 per hour fee for the driver to return to Crystal City (minimum $20).

2. Service hours - 8 am to 6 pm Tuesday to Friday - times and dates outside normal service must be pre-arranged with the driver or arrangements made to supply an approved driver.

3. The driver may request that an attendant accompany a user - if client needs assistance to be mobile, attendant may be required.
 
 
 
**The Rock Lake Handy Van has been awarded a one-time grant of $10,000 from the Province of Manitoba to provide transportation services for clients to and from COVID-19 vaccination appointments outside their home community. This means trips can be offered free of charge for local residents.  Cut off of this service will be once the total of expense $10,000 is reached.

The Rock Lake Handy Van must adhere to the current Manitoba COVID-19 Prevention Order meaning seats per trip are limited.

The Rock Lake Handy Van is now open to the public for medical and COVID-19 vaccination appointments only.
