We’re Proud to Announce a New President!


“I believe in Voyago’s ‘never say no’ culture and our people-focused values.
Our values have been with us from the start and staying true to these beliefs is perhaps more important now than at any other time in our history.”

Help us in congratulating Corey Jarvis, (formerly COO-Voyago) for his appointment to President Voyago.

Corey has been with Voyago since 2002 and has been a key part of our growth from that time forward. Corey has worked on nearly every aspect of Voyago’s operation and was a significant influence in shaping our Patient Transfer division, Voyago Health.

Congratulations Corey!

Voyago Selected as Transit Partner to Strathroy-Caradoc, Sarnia, London Inter-Community Transit Service

We’re excited and proud to have been chosen to provide this vital service starting in April 2020 connecting these prominent SW Ontario communities. See the Following PR Release.

About Inter-Community Transit Service for Sarnia, Strathroy and London
We believe community transit plays an important role in sustaining strong and vibrant local economies by providing essential travel service to mobility-challenged individuals.

This Inter-Community Transit service allows more people, more opportunity to connect to amenities at home, and to those in neighbouring cities – City to City, Everyday.

Voyago supports the Government of Ontario’s Community Transportation Grant Program as an ideal initiative to ensure Community to Community access. These programs provide people with the freedom and mobility that enrich their community experience.
Voyago expects to commence operations in April 2020, offering three round trips daily Monday to Fridays, excluding statutory holidays, plus two round trip services on Saturdays and Sundays.

Voyago will provide dedicated purpose-built transit vehicles, fully compliant to AODA
(Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) specifications to the service system, along with fully trained, dedicated Transit Drivers.

We are confident that ridership levels will reach intended targets as indicated through the community research and key stakeholders will see value in the program long term to perhaps sustain the service through the initial pilot funding period set to expire in March of 2023.

We are currently working towards on-boarding our operational teams, supporting our partner communities with marketing and communications planning, and preparing the fleet of service vehicles.

Voyago teams are excited and look forward to begin operations serving the communities of Sarnia, Strathroy-Caradoc and London with more access to more places, for more people.
End of Release.
