NEW! Request For Proposal (RFP)
The Medically At-Risk Driver (MARD) Centre at the University of Alberta invites applications from not-for- profit organizations (e.g., senior's centres, handivan societies, municipalities, etc.) in Alberta that are currently delivering alternate transportation to seniors (ATS) services. The goal of this pilot project is to determine if the use of ride-scheduling software increases efficiency in service delivery and decreases the cost of ATS service provision. The successful Alberta applicant will work with MARD to establish and support the implementation of ride- scheduling software within its ATS service/organization and facilitate evaluation of the software during this pilot project.
