Other events affecting travel

How extreme weather and statutory holidays can affect travel bookings.

Other information

If you would like to travel on a statutory holiday or the day after the holiday, you must call 905-791-1015 and book by 7 p.m. the day before the holiday.

For example, if your travel day is Monday, October 7 (Thanksgiving Day statutory holiday) OR Tuesday, October 8 (the day after the statutory holiday) your booking deadline is the same: 7 p.m. on Sunday, October 6.

To cancel your trip on a statutory holiday, call us at 905-791-1015.

One week before each statutory holiday, we will provide information on how booking hours and service are affected.

On statutory holidays:

  • The TransHelp administrative office is closed.
  • All subscription trips are cancelled, except for dialysis trips.
  • No flexible trips are accommodated.
  • A message will be posted on the website, appear when you log in, and play on the phone when you call 905-791-1015.

Safety is our number one priority. Help keep yourself and your driver safe this winter.

Winter travel tips

  • Check the forecast before you head out.
  • Dress for the weather.
  • Turn your outdoor lights on.
  • Clear snow and ice from your driveway, ramp, and stairs.

Severe Weather Day

TransHelp will declare a Severe Weather Day when ice or significant snowfall is expected to impact service.

On Severe Weather Days:

  • Poor road conditions can result in late pickups and arrivals.
  • Same day flexible trips are not provided.
  • Trips can be cancelled up to 2 hours before the start of the pick-up window without being charged the fare.

When a Severe Weather Day is called, we will:

  • Post an alert online.
  • Play a message on the IVR phone system.

On Severe Weather Days, we ask that you:

  • Call your destination to make sure it's still open.
  • Make sure your driveway, ramp, and stairs are clear of snow and ice.
  • Call the IVR or login online to confirm your trip details in case of delays.
  • Cancel your trip online by logging into your Transhelp account.
  • Cancel using the IVR by calling 905-791-1015, then pressing 1.
