About Us

CHAD Transit is funded by municipal governments, provincial government, fare revenue and donations. Because of our financial structure we operate on a shoestring budget that is watched and managed very closely. Every source of funding is critical to the ongoing sustainability of CHAD Transit.

Community Transportation for All

Recognized for efficient, affordable, and inclusive Pictou County Community Transportation

Community Wellness, Reliability, Sustainability

CHAD Transit (Central Highlands Association of the Disabled) formed in 1981 as an advocacy group for people living with disabilities. When Pictou County’s Public Transit bus service ended in 1996, CHAD Transit stepped up at that point to provide transportation to the disabled and seniors.  We have since grown and now provide transportation to anybody who needs a drive.
