Grey County Warden Paul McQueen highlighted the importance of the GTR program in our area.  “Everyone needs access to reliable, affordable transportation, and a lack of transit services creates a huge barrier for those who don’t own a vehicle or can’t drive. GTR can be used to get to work, medical appointments or shopping. It’s also a great service for anyone looking to get out and explore another community with a safe and reliable ride home.”
