Rural Public Transit - Car Pool World Offers Millbrook Resident Possible Solution

Millbrook Resident Posts Carpool World Transportation Request

Omemee area residents are well acquainted with the challenges of getting from here to there. While rural life is enjoyable, sometimes transportation becomes a major stumbling block  especially if your wheels are no longer available. How can people living in rural areas reduce their carbon footprint where no public transit is available?
People living in Dunsford can catch the Rural transit bus that loops through Bobcaygeon, Fenelon Falls, Cameron and Lindsay. However, rural transit was discontinued for Omemee. 
Community Care rides are available on a first come first served basis with priority being medical appointments, but volunteer drivers are desperately needed for rural areas.
Carpool World may be the solution. 
A Millbrook resident recently posted the following request for transportation on Carpool World:
