Oh the Places You’ll Go; Transportation Services in Dufferin County
One of the biggest advantages to living in Orangeville or anywhere in Dufferin County is that it isn’t busy. There’s no hustle or bustle, no congestion or traffic jams, unless you count 12 cars backed up on Broadway as a traffic jam (Orangeville problems-lol). That can be a blessing for some and a curse for others. Most of us have the luxury of jumping in our vehicles to get to work, appointments or kids to their activities; but, what if you don’t own a vehicle?
