ADMISSIBILITY CRITERIA

User  Rules:

The users must respect the rules and conditions of use at all times. All the rules and conditions of use of TransporAction Pontiac are in the User Policy.

COLLECTIVE TRANSPORATION 

Collective transportation is an alternative to public transportation. Due to the low population density, this method of transportation cannot be established. So, rather than use the services of permanent bus lines with preestablished circuits which are very expensive, collective transportation uses volunteer drivers.
To qualify for the collective transportation service offered by TransporAction Pontiac, an individual must:


a) Be a permanent resident in one of the municipalities in the coverage area or of the Municipality of Pontiac and have a valid Québec medical insurance card number.

b) Be 65 years old or over or not own a car (certain medical cases can be admitted temporarily: verify with the staff of TransporAction Pontiac).

c) Respect the policies, the regulations, the codes and others of TAP or of the government or of another institution.

ADAPTED TRANSPORTATION 

This is an adapted collective transportation service fitted to people having a physical, intellectual, psychological handicap or in loss of autonomy. The person can be accompanied when essential to his mobility.

To qualify for the paratransit service offered by TransporAction, an individual must:

a) Be a permanent resident in one of the municipalities in the coverage area, or admitted in another territory; and have your Quebec medical card number.

b) Meet the criteria stipulated in the Paratransit Eligibility Policy of the Quebec department of Transportation.

c) Submit an application for admission to TAP, using the regulatory forms.

d) Be accepted by the Admission Committee.

e) Respect TAP’s policies, regulations, codes and others as well as those of the government or of other institutions.
