Rides should be easy and enjoyable. Your driver is trained to treat you with respect and to think of your needs. Please treat the driver in the way you wish to be treated. Please follow these steps:
Call to arrange non-emergency ride two business days in advance. (Saturday, Sunday and holidays are not business days).
Be able to provide the complete address, phone number, and who you will be seeing at the doctor’s office.
Be at the pick-up address. Be there at the earliest time given to you by the transportation service.
To cancel your ride, call at least two hours before your pick-up time.
When your visit is finished, call the transportation company for your return trip.
You need to be ready for your pickup. You should be there at the beginning of your pickup time. The transportation company can only wait 10 minutes before you will be marked as a no show. If you cannot keep your appointment, you must call the transportation company as soon as possible. The transportation company reserves the right to take away your ride benefits. This can be for six months after three no shows within three months.
What is a No Show?
A member is not at the pick-up location
A member cannot be seen at the pick-up location
A member is not on-time at the pick-up location
The driver will wait 10 minutes. If you have any questions, please call Member Services.
