It is a door to door transportation service for persons with disabilities.

Other means of Ottawa Transportation available are rental cars, taxis and limousines for your convenience. Ask your hotel if they offer a shuttle, some of them will have them and they are very convenient for the visitor. Whichever way that you decide to see the city you will need to have a map with you at all times. Highlight your route ahead of time to save time finding the roads on the map.
