Since 1984, EmergyCare's Paratransit division has kept a large population of medically vulnerable individuals connected to the healthcare system by ensuring a safe and timely way to get to medical appointments and procedures in clean, comfortable wheelchair vans and medical taxis.
EmergyCare is the area's largest and most trusted medical transportation and paratransit organization. EmergyCare's paratransit vehicles are staffed with trained personnel to assist patients who use wheelchairs to and from their medical appointments and procedures. Our personnel offers you more than just a ride to your destination. You receive door-to-door service, ensuring you are safe and comfortably assisted back into your home or to your medical appointment.
Individuals who can walk independently but don't have a way to get to their medical appointments or prefer not to drive in inclement weather can take advantage of our Medical Taxi program. Our personnel will take individuals to and from their medical appointments in one of our three medical taxi vehicles.
Both services can be scheduled weeks in advance or same-day when availability allows. Rates are $50 one way, with an additional $5 per mile charge for all loaded miles.
