If you are a Handi-Transit registered user, Attendant Cards allow your companion to ride free when travelling on the regular conventional buses, including the Community Service (not on Handi-Transit). The Handi-Transit registrant may also travel on a conventional bus without the companion. For a nominal one-time fee you can get a Attendant/Companion card. This card is only available at Cornwall Transit and requires a photo to be taken of the Handi-Transit registrant. This self-serve approach is designed to allow passengers with disabilities to be self-reliant and able to use the regular conventional service at their convenience. In order to obtain the card please fill out this form and return it to
