Our History

The Richmond Hill Mobility Accessibility Foundation (RH Mobility) was formed in 1999, when a group of volunteers decided that Richmond Hill needed an accessible taxi van to help individuals with mobility impairments living within the Town of Richmond Hill.

Through different fundraising adventures, RH Mobility started to raise much-needed funds, and in doing so was able to assist with the purchase of two accessible vans. The foundation then decided to broaden the scope of the mandate by moving beyond just transit services, to achieve their goal of making Richmond Hill a barrier-free community, including subsidized gym memberships for the disabled, our Assistive Devices Program to ease financial pressures, and other community programs.

Funding Sources

Richmond Hill Mobility Accessibility Foundation (RH Mobility) has two main reliable sources of funding:

  • One source of funding is through the Disabled Parking By-Law Reserve Fund. For more information please refer to our By-laws.

  • The other reliable source of funding is through organized Bingo proceeds.

Through our funding we have started to break down accessibility barriers in and around our community in many ways to improve mobility for persons with disabilities.
