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.
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.
Rock Lake Handy Van must adhere to the current Manitoba COVID-19 Prevention Order
meaning seats per trip are limited.
Rock Lake Handy Van is now open to the public for medical and COVID-19
vaccination appointments only.
