I think of Dan Mahoney, owner of Bayport Seniors Transportation , as a bit of a gentle giant. An excellent and careful driver, he is well-skilled in helping a senior with mobility issues into his vehicle and equally well-skilled at putting them at ease. He is attentive to the needs of his clients’ schedules and always arrives on time. I particularly appreciate his notifications to me that my husband has arrived at his location/appointment safely.
Dan Mahoney of Bayport Senior Transportation provides exceptional service to his clients and their families. Dan provided transportation services for my dad to and from his residence and the dialysis unit. He built a great rapport with my dad and his service was always punctual, caring, and top-notch. He would ensure that my dad was well situated at the dialysis unit before leaving and always on-time to pick him up. Caring for your elderly parents can be very stressful at times, so I cannot express the peace of mind that I had knowing that Bayport Senior Transport was a partner in my dad’s care. When my dad fell and broke his hip and hospitalized for a few months, Dan came to visit my dad. I know my dad really appreciated the visits and conversations. And when my dad was discharged from the hospital, Dan was there to help us organize some special equipment to ensure a safe transfer from the hospital to the home. Thank you, Dan, for your professional and caring service.
When my mom lost her license due to Alzheimer’s I found Dan Mahoney to provide transportation services to allow her some independence. At first she was very against it, I asked her to just give it a try. It took an initial meeting and she immediately felt comfortable with Dan. My mom feels safe when she’s with him, he makes her feel special and she just loves him. Dan is her new “buddy” and she tells everyone about him!
Dan was a consummate professional. Early, patient, and more than kind enough to laugh at my bad jokes on the drive to my appointment!
When I didn't have any other options — since I'm not a senior myself, no other similar service could or would help me, and didn't really know anyone in Ottawa well enough to ask for three or so hours of their time (and being required to have someone take me to, from, and stay nearby during the entire duration of a dental appointment) — he was a real lifesaver.
Most importantly, he was willing to entertain what may or may not seem like a strange request and phone my anxious, elderly mother to let her know how one and only pride and joy was doing, where we were, and when I'd be back home. That's real customer service: serving not just the client, but the client's needs, which included the client's family. That's what this is all about, right? Taking care of people and letting their family know that they're in good hands?
What I've lost in a wisdom tooth I've gained in knowing there's someone I can call on again in future if another such medical appointment should ever rear its ugly head.
I'd gladly put myself in Dan's trustworthy hands and therefore would wholeheartedly and without a shadow of a doubt or hesitation recommend him to anyone looking for a courteous non-emergency medical escort service. :)

If you are looking for a professional, dependable, kind and caring person to help with transportation for yourself or your loved one, I would highly recommend Dan. He provided transportation for my Mother. She thought very highly of him and he made her feel very comfortable. He was easy to book with, and was punctual and went above and beyond to ensure my Mother’s safety. Thanks Dan!
We have used Bayport Senior Transportation Services for numerous trips for my mom and we are very happy with the service. They are extremely professional and reliable and always respectful and kind to my mom. My mom has mobility problems and previous transportation service providers always made an issue with this, but not Bayport; Dan picks her up and drops her off with no problems at all. Highly recommend Dan and Bayport Senior Transportation!"
I met Dan as a provider for transportation for my father and was impressed by his deep caring. My father, Alan McCleery, was an Olympic athlete and loved his sport of kayaking which he did until age 92. Dan met my father for a trip to the Passport Office and took a genuine interest in him. It was fall and a bit late in the season. Dan reached out to take my Dad to coffee at Tim's and other places and called him just to check up on him. We didn't realize that a symptom of dementia was a comfort with familiar. Dan kept calling and emailed me (in Toronto) and asked after my Dad. Finally, this summer arrived (2022) and Dan was ready to take him kayaking. Dan wanted to help him with the sport he loved, to get to Rideau Canoe Club, and out on the water. My Dad passed but before he did. Dan came to the hospital. My father was very touched. Dan did this because he deeply cares about people, he never received compensation for all the time he took for my father. He has a huge heart. I owe him a big debt of gratitude. He is a wonderful person!
Dan Mahoney has been driving my elderly father to dialysis a number of times now. He has become very valuable to my family when we need assistance. He is kind, warmhearted and very respectful toward my father. We know we can count on his safe driving, punctuality, conscientiousness and his caring manner. Dan is very personable and genuinely enjoys getting to know his clients. My father greatly enjoys his visits with Dan. They seem to have many stories to tell each other. We are confident knowing Dad is well taken care of during his trips to appointments and would highly recommend Bayport Senior Transportation.
Dan at Bayport Seniors Transportation Services was recommended to our family by our previous provider when he retired.
My mother continues to enjoy getting out to do her own grocery shopping but is no longer able to drive. I reached out to Dan for assistance in getting her out to do her errands every couple of weeks. Dan responded immediately and services were set up on a day and time that accommodated my mother’s preferences. The rest is history.
Dan and my mother have built a great relationship. His communication with both my mom and our family is excellent. He is caring, trustworthy and very respectful of mother's physical limitations. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone requiring transportation assistance for seniors in the Ottawa area.
Dan Mahoney and Bayport Senior Transportation have been driving me to medical and personal appointments for several months now. His service is first class and his rates are fair and reasonable.
He is always on time, he is patient and kind, and he really understands the unique needs that seniors have when they are being driven to and from medical appointments. Nothing seems too much for him to do to please his clients, and he caters to handicapped people (e.g. with wheelchairs and walkers) very efficiently and caringly.
All things considered, I would highly recommend him to anyone considering the need for transportation for seniors in the Ottawa area.
Dan Mahoney has been driving my parents to and from medical appointments and social events for over two years and has become an indispensable part of their independent senior lifestyle. Both of my parents have mobility issues and they find Dan to be of great help while not making them feel rushed getting in and out of the car. He is a very warm, patient, respectful person and is always punctual. It's great for my peace of mind knowing my parents are in good hands when I can't always be there to help.
Dan Mahoney has been driving me and a few other women to our Irish Senior Meeting in Ottawa every week for the past year.
He is excellent; courteous, polite and always punctual. It is a real pleasure to drive with him.
Dan Mahoney has been a valued member of our Transportation team at the RBC Ottawa Bluesfest for more than a decade. He is kind and considerate to our passengers and is always ready to pitch in when extra help is needed. It goes without saying that he is a safe, conscientious and patient driver who is able maneuver around challenging obstacles including barricades, crowds and equipment. Dan always has a smile and when we have time to sit together as a team, he keeps us entertained with his wonderful storytelling!
