As some of our riders have allergies and sensitivities, all vehicles used for SWNT travel must be smoke-free and low scent. We also ask that a driver's clothes and person also be smoke-free and free of strongly scented products when traveling with a rider.
Volunteers are required to carry 2 million liability insurance and have the blessing of their insurance provider to volunteer. *
As one of the first steps toward joining the team, Sou'West Nova Transit will provide a form for you to bring to your insurer that describes our volunteer team. They will be able to advise you of any costs associated with raising your coverage, if necessary. (Note that for many of our volunteers, it was only a nominal fee!) Sou'West Nova Transit's insurance covers volunteers above and beyond their own insurance.
