Continuity of Para-Bus Service


As of August 1, 2018, the parallel-transit service for individuals with disabilities in the City of North Bay, also known as the Para-Bus, will no longer be operated by the Physically Handicapped Adults’ Rehabilitation Association (P.H.A.R.A.).  The City of North Bay thanks P.H.A.R.A for their past support of the service and continued support through the transition.

Despite the change in service provider, the City of North Bay will continue to support the delivery of the Para-Bus Service during the transition to a new service provider which is anticipated to be in place in the near future.  Those eligible to use the North Bay Para-Bus Service can continue to follow the current practice for questions and bookings.
