Mobility Disadvantaged Transportation Program (MDTP)

 
The Province of Manitoba sponsors the MDTP, which is designed to assist communities to provide transportation services for mobility disadvantaged persons in Manitoba.  The program makes provision for grants to assist in defraying the cost of acquiring and operating equipment to provide transportation for those who are unable to utilize available transportation facilities without special facility or planning.
 
To qualify for funding under this program, the sponsoring community concerned must demonstrate a commitment to keep a service in operation once it is established.  The transportation provided must also meet minimum standards for service and safety as set out in these guidelines.  The service must be available to all mobility disadvantaged individuals in the community.  The sponsoring community will be required to cover any deficit after receipt of grants, donations and user fees.
