Welcome to DTS!

The Disabled Transportation Society (DTS) of Grande Prairie is a non-profit society, with a mission to supply door to door transportation for persons with special needs, who are unable to use other forms of public transportation, safely and with dignity.

Our fleet of 10, wheelchair accessible busses serves clients and members in and around the City of Grande Prairie and Clairmont.

Our volunteer board of directors is elected by the membership at the society's annual general meeting.

We are largely funded by the City of Grande Prairie, and supplemented by donations from the United Way, Rotary Cars for Christmas, the County of Grande Prairie, membership fees, trip fares, and fund raising at Bingos and Casinos. We are proud to work with the City and residents of Grande Prairie to provide transportation and an improved quality of life, for persons with disabilities.

Every annual membership fee of $30.00 assists us to a great degree.
