Making the Annapolis Valley a better place for LGBTQ youth and our allies

Transportation Request

We can arrange for a van service or cab to and from Valley Youth Project activities for participants from Kings, Hants, or Annapolis County!

Signup Deadline

  • 12 noon, two business days before the event

For a Wednesday night drop-in, that means we can take requests until Monday at 12 pm.  We’ll confirm your pickup time no later than 3:30 Wednesday afternoon for regular drop-ins.

Pick-up/Drop Off Time and Place

Please choose pick-up/drop-off locations that are safe and easy to get to.  That can be your home, school, or any other place that works for you, in Kings, Hants, or Annapolis Counties.

Kings Point-To-Point Transit, Hants County Dial-A-Ride, Trans Country Transportation Society, or M&G Cabs will pick you at the place you choose and drive you to the activity location in time to arrive as it begins.  For a normal drop-in, that would be Port Williams Community Centre at 6:30pm.  Then you’ll be picked up at the end of the activity (normally 8:30pm), and driven to the drop-off location you choose. Cab/van drivers can’t provide extra stops along the way, or arrange for arriving/leaving at other times.  Also note that the drivers will not take you anywhere else besides the activity location… sorry, no trips to Disneyland this time around!

Who Drives?

A driver and cab with either Kings Point-To-Point Transit , Hants County Dial-A-Ride, Trans County Transportation Society, or M&G Cabs will pick you up, depending on where you’re coming from and how early you book. You might be sharing a ride with another drop-in participant if they live on the way.  If you have concerns about this, please let us know and we will do our best to work with you.

Safety and Legal Stuff

Although the VYP will pay your fare, and you are expected to abide by the VYP Guiding Principles of respect for self and others during transportation, in every other way this is exactly the same as any other time you take a cab.  As with any travel, make sure someone you trust knows where you’re going and when you plan to be back.  The Valley Youth Project will do our best to make sure your transportation is as safe as possible.  But, please note that you, not the VYP, are responsible for yourself and your belongings while traveling.

Please be considerate of other users and help us make this service free for everyone who needs it: carpool if you can; don’t book trips if you don’t need them; don’t book trips for any reason other than getting to VYP activities; and if you can’t make it, please cancel at least 3 hours in advance so we won’t be billed for the trip.

Note: Although we hope we’ll never need to, we reserve the right to refuse transportation for any reason.  If that ever happens, you’ll be notified beforehand.

Request a Drive

Once we receive your request, we’ll get back to you (normally 1 day in advance) to confirm the time you’ll be picked-up/dropped-off.

REMEMBER: We will leave you a message to confirm.  If you don’t get a message, you’re not signed up!
