It’s handy and fun: don’t miss out on grocery bus service

In partnership with Bay Rides, Bay Seniors provides a weekly Grocery Bus Service. It’s a great service – and a great chance to be of service in our community. We need volunteers.

The Grocery Bus picks up shoppers on Tuesday mornings from communities as far apart as West Dover and Queensland, drives them to Sobeys or Superstore in Tantallon, then returns shoppers and their groceries back home

This service has been running since September 2016, and provides an essential resource in our community.

Those who don’t drive find it particularly helpful. Some have said it means they can continue to live in the Bay.Others say the service relieves their dependence on family, friends and neighbours. Those who have impairments are glad to have volunteers to help.

We’d love to hear from anyone who would like to be a helper.

Our volunteers are essential in helping run the program.

Volunteers arrive at 9.15 am to greet shoppers and then accompany shoppers in the store, giving whatever help is needed, like finding products or lifting items off shelves.

The two and a half hour commitment includes a social gathering with coffee, tea and refreshments provided by the grocery stores.

For more information on the Grocery Bus Service, or to volunteer, please contact the Seniors Information Centre by phone at 902-820-3334 or email us at
