Northern Health Connections bus features new online booking system

The transportation system in place to make health care access easier for Northern British Columbians has expanded some of their services to the public, with Northern Health Connections now introducing an online booking system for those that need to make travel arrangements beyond their service area.

The online access point is highlighted on the Northern Health Connections website, with a helpful guide to the schedule in place for the various routes provided for your review.

Residents who prefer to talk to a reservations clerk in person can still do so, the number for more information on the service is 1-888-647-4997.

The transportation service makes use of a fleet of six coaches and five minibuses, with Prince Rupert residents familiar with the highway coach that regularly travels the route to Terrace, across northern British Columbia into Prince George and on to Vancouver for those with appointments at the larger hospitals to the south.

Access to the service is for non-emergency health care and those that seek to travel (with room for a companion) will have to fill out an appointment verification form before they can seek travel with the service.
