Present in Quebec and Ontario, Transdev Canada already has 2,500 employees operating in the transit, student, paratransit and medical transportation sectors. Transdev is also the operator of the future Hurontario light rail system in the Greater Toronto Area, as a member of the Mobilinx consortium, and of the future Ontario Line metro as a member of the Connect 6ix consortium.
With Priority Patient Transfer Service Inc, Transdev Canada is expanding its historic non-emergency medical transportation business in the Ottawa region. A pioneer of these services in Ontario through its subsidiary Voyago, Transdev Canada had already expanded its non-emergency medical transportation activities in Quebec in 2022, winning contracts for the CIUSSS of the Mauricie and Centre-du-Québec regions. This acquisition reinforces the Transdev group's growth strategy in Canada in the field of non-emergency medical transportation, with the more global desire to offer a set of multi-modal services to serve communities, while remaining as close as possible to the specific needs of each territory.
"We are particularly proud to be able to partner with the great non-emergency medical transportation professionals at Priority Patient Transfer Service Inc. This is an area of activity where quality of service and care for passengers is more than paramount. The values we share with Priority Patient Transfer Service mean that we naturally have the same vision of our mission and its importance to the community. We are delighted to see our teams grow in this way,"
Arthur Nicolet, Chief Executive Officer of Transdev Canada
“We have been proud to witness Priority grow, as a premier provider of specialized transportation services in Eastern Ontario, with an emphasis on advanced personnel training and state-of-the-art equipment and procedures. This acquisition by Transdev is the next evolutionary stage for Priority and one that our management team is embracing as a great opportunity to leverage the synergies between the company and resources available to further enhance our services and maintain our momentum of growth,” adds Robert Soczka, Director of Operations of Priority Patient Transfer Service.
