Powell River Taxi now has a wheelchair taxi service for those requiring that form of transportation.

Manager and co-owner of Powell River Taxi Rob Maithus said the company has had the taxi for nearly a year but the difficulty was finding a driver who was willing to keep the vehicle and be on call. A driver is in place and the service is now available.

“If someone needs to go to St. Paul’s Hospital for the day, or to Vancouver Island for the day, this would be perfect for that. If they can have this option, it’s way cheaper for them in the long run, rather than having to go out and buy a van.”
