Who pays for the ride?
There are a number of entities that can pay for the ride from Medicaid to NH DOT. Additional funds to help pay for rides come from Speare Memorial Hospital, local towns and individual donations.
Can I request a ride for other reasons than a medical appointment?
These rides are for non-emergency medical appointments only. We are unable to transport for any other reason at this time.
If you have an emergency please call 911.
What is the criteria to get a ride?
Riders need to be 60 years or older or have a disability and people who have medicaid.
Are the rides wheelchair accessible?
Sorry no. Transport Central volunteers use personal vehicles which are not wheelchair accessible. The divers can accommodate a wheelchair passenger if that person can self transfer from the chair to the vehicle. If you are in need of a wheelchair van for transportation please call 211 to talk to Service Link.
How are you dealing with COVID?
All of our volunteers are following strict cleaning guidelines for their vehicles and both the driver and passenger are asked to wear a mask for the entirety of the trip.
