GoRide offers bedside-to-bedside service with professionally trained drivers, on-demand wheelchair service, properly outfitted transportation vans, and on-time arrivals and departures.

Increasing Demand for Non-Emergency Medical Transportation

As the Baby Boomer population ages, there is an increasing demand for proper non-emergency medical transportation. Almost half of all U.S. adults suffer from one or more chronic health conditions, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Having a dependable way to get to and from the doctor is crucial to ensuring patients receive the routine treatment they need to maintain their health. Ford’s GoRide service is helping meet this demand. In its pilot phase, GoRide delivered a 92% on-time patient pick-up and delivery rate, with average wait times of only 10 to 30 minutes for on-demand wheelchair transport.
