May 10, 2021 Attention: All Healthcare Workers Re: National Nursing Week May 10th to May 16th This week is National Nursing Week in Canada and Voyago Health is dedicating this week to promoting and recognizing the efforts of all Nurses. Nurses have demonstrated just how fortunate we are to live in a country like Canada, where access to care is available to everyone, everywhere, no matter the crisis. We’re thankful for their service and commitment to protecting patients and co-workers. This year’s theme, #WeAnswerTheCall, was developed by the Canadian Nursing Association and it showcases the many roles that nurses play in a patient’s health-care journey. The pandemic brought to light the courage and commitment that nurses work under every day and showed the important role that nurses play in the community; see more at: https://www.cna-aiic.ca/en/news-room/events/national-nursing-week. Voyago Health supports and stands with our Nursing and Front-line Workers through this pandemic and beyond. Join us, reach out to a Nurse, maybe someone you know or even if you don’t, and say Thank You from the bottom of our hearts.

April 12, 2021 Attention: All Voyago Employees Re: COVID-19 and the Vaccine
“We’ve said all along, Voyago has your back. We stand with you and together we will overcome COVID 19 and be all the better for it.”
We’re now just slightly over one year into the pandemic and, as a result of the efforts of all employees, we are much stronger as a result. We are proud of all of you and your commitments to work together and to think outside the box to find unique and innovative ways to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on services to our clients and riders.
We’re encouraging everyone to GET THE VACCINE, and we are making every possible arrangement to help get you in line regardless of your age. We also highly encourage everyone to know and research the availability of a vaccine within your areas; reminder your age may permit your vaccine approval before occupation does.
For more information on the Ontario Governments initiatives please visit: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/covid-19-vaccines-ontario.
Reminder to regularly utilize PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to keep yourself safe; we have been very safe as a company as a result of everyone’s diligent use of PPE, the continued cleaning of vehicles, buildings and everyone practicing social distancing. Ontario has entered a new wave of transmission, we remind everyone at Voyago to stay diligent in your efforts that help reduce the spread, Stay Home when you can, Social Distance, Wear a Mask, Use Hand Sanitizer and Wash Your Hands, to protect you and your friends and family.
Thanks to all of you and your commitment, Voyago has been able to sustain our service to our Students, Patients and Transit Riders when many others have failed or declined to do so – that is all thanks to our Difference Maker – The Voyago People!
Even at the best of times Food Banks across Ontario are challenged to meet demand throughout the year. And now under the COVID 19 Response Restrictions many people have become jobless, and forced to rely on the support of others., and that’s what makes Canada great. Voyago Transdev employees are True Heroes in Truly Canadian fashion with their recent donation of much need food supplies for London Food Bank. Thank you team for Making a Difference.
In 2019, Voyago was purchased by Transdev Canada, a leading mobility services company with operations across the globe. This opportunity deepens our capabilities and capacity and strengthens our Innovative Solutions, Advanced Technologies, and Mobility Intelligence for our Voyago Employees, Clients, Passengers and Communities.
Voyago is Mobility For All and we strive to maintain compliance with AODA guidelines in all facets of our business. We take inclusion and access for all very seriously and deploy every effort to ensure we meet or exceed standards under AODA. To learn more about Voyago’s compliance measures in AODA download a copy of our Accessibility Plan attached to this release.
“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.” CJOct05
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.
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.
Voyago has implemented several protocols within our operations that ensure our Employees, Ridership, and Visitors are well protected from possible spread of COVID-19. Our multi-point strategy includes, Daily Active Screening, Personal Hygiene Measures, Personal Protective Equipment, Physical Distancing, Protocol Communications and Training, and Environmental Protection Actions for our facilities and vehicles.
We encourage you to follow your local guidelines to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and make use of tools available from the Ontario Ministry of Health.
