Seniors, take note! The City of Cornwall's Senior-Friendly Community Committee is pleased to announce that we are getting ready to launch the Seniors on Wheels program this summer!

We have two brand new Ami Trishaw bikes where passengers are seated in the front making it easy to step in and out of. Seating in the front also allows unobstructed views to enjoy the beautiful scenery along a network of paved pathways in Lamoureux Park.

The trishaw is electric and operated by a trained volunteer pilot.


How it works

It's free to use the trishaw! 

  • There is seating for two passengers
  • Rides are 30 minutes long
  • Pickup and drop-off is in the east end of the Civic Complex, up the hill from Marina 200.
  • If you need transportation, please call Cornwall Transit at 613-930-2636 to travel to your trishaw appointment - free!

The Trishaw operations will follow COVID-19 regulations. Trishaws are sanitized between each booking. Passengers are required to wear a helmet (we can provide).

Operating hours in 2022 are Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Passengers can book on-line (the link will be available soon), by phone or if you drop by and there happens to be an opening.


Volunteers

Seniors on Wheels needs volunteers! You can make the difference in a senior's day by piloting the electric trishaw. We'll work with your schedule and provide training before you start.

Sign up to be a volunteer pilot

Friendly folks of all generations are welcome to apply and help bring joy to seniors in Cornwall.


Project Background

The trishaw is available thanks to a New Horizons Grant. The Senior-Friendly Community Committee spearheaded the Trishaw Project as part of their mandate to...

  • reduce organizational, social, and physical barriers that prevent seniors from fully engaging in community activities
  • to provide a healthy community by focusing on the World Health Organization's identified key areas such as transportation, housing, social participation - to name a few

The Rotary Club Sunrise has supported this project with a $3,000 donation.
