Redbeard Rides offers service to county residents

Wellington County residents now have a new option for getting around.

Harriston residents Ann and Ken Hepburn have launched Redbeard Rides, a pre-booked transportation service available to “anyone in Wellington County going anywhere in Ontario.”

“Anyone can use our service. We do not have any eligibility requirements. Our vehicles are spotlessly clean and are driven by professional drivers under our public vehicle licence. This means that when you book a ride with Redbeard Rides, we are dedicated to your service,” states a press release announcing the new businesses.

Redbeard Rides currently has one van on the road but plans to add a wheelchair accessible vehicle as soon as possible.

“We want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to attend activities and go where they want, when they want. Whether you have a doctor’s appointment, a medical test, a family function, a social event or just need a trip to shop, we can help with that. Our service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to pre-booked charters,” the release states.

The business was officially launched at the Minto Chamber of Commerce summer barbecue held at Palmerston Lions Heritage Park on July 12.
