1988 A group of concerned local citizens formed Georgina Mobility Transit (GMT) to address the transportation challenges faced by some community residents.
1991 GMT was incorporated as a registered charity, and thanks to support from the Town of Georgina, it operated a Mobility Bus for 12 years.
1994 Transit Georgina was formed by a group of local citizens who were concerned about the special transportation needs of people at high risk of social isolation. These needs would include sole support women and their children, youth, frail elderly people, and people suffering from serious acute and chronic illnesses. Transit Georgina grew out of an initiative of the Premier’s Council on Health, Well-being and Social Justice. Transit Georgina, which was initially called “The Transportation Club,” was comprised of a Rider-Driver matching system.
2005 In June, GMT and Transit Georgina amalgamated to form one consolidated non-profit charity with the goal of improving the transportation needs of Georgina residents. Transit Georgina and GMT provide over 12,000 rides per year.
2012 In 2012, a re-branding initiative was undertaken to update our organizational identity and create a recognizable brand. Our New Logo – We connect communities. The workers, volunteers, and board members at our grassroots organization are eager to make a difference. Moving people has always been our primary goal, and we now realize we can move people in many more ways than providing rides. Helping people develop and grow is what led to the idea of roots and roads. The word Routes speaks to so many of our ideas and hopes for our community. We’re here to help people discover the routes available in life and to develop strong roots that empower them to independence.
