Health Connections is based on a highly-successful service that PWT currently operates in British Columbia. The July 14th event will be held at the The Intercity Shopping Centre (1000 Fort William Road, outside the customer service entrance) at 11:00 a.m.

PWT is the largest privately-owned people transportation company in the country. “Health Connections has already proven itself to be a major success in British Columbia, and I am delighted that we’re having an opportunity to preview the service in Thunder Bay. A safe, reliable and comfortable service, we strongly believe that Health Connections would be a welcome option for residents traveling to medical appointments in other towns or cities,” stated Dean Wright, General Manager, PWT. “We’d very much like to build our business in the North, and Health Connections would represent PWT’s most significant investment in Ontario to date. This service would provide an economic development opportunity for Thunder Bay through the hiring of local staff, the leasing of local property and the purchasing of parts and supplies from local vendors.”
