John Howard Society Transportation Program

The transportation program offers low cost, twice per month transportation for visitors to the federal penitentiaries in Kingston and Warkworth areas. This is operated primarily by volunteers. Passengers must arrange clearance for their visit with the institution that they are visiting. This program is partially funded by the John Howard Society of Ontario.
