Transportation to medical appointments can be difficult to find, especially if the appointment requires a friend or family member to pick you up after the procedure. With transportation becoming an increasingly prevalent issue for older adults, RSVP of Boulder County has created a program, in conjunction with Special Transit, to provide volunteer drivers and escorts to medical appointments.
What is Medical Mobility?
Medical Mobility is a new transportation program within RSVP of Boulder County that provides rides to doctor’s appointments for ambulatory seniors and adults with disabilities. RSVP’s program allows clients to stay secure, comfortable, independent and living in their homes for as long as possible.
How does it work?
Volunteer drivers use their own cars to transport the clients to their appointments and can wait for the duration of procedure before taking them home. The service is offered throughout Boulder County and clients that RSVP cannot serve are referred to Special Transit or other local transportation services that provide a broader range of services that we cannot provide, such as assistance with wheelchairs. Rides can be scheduled on weekdays from 8:30am-5pm with the RSVP Transportation Coordinator, and at least 24 hours notice is requested, but rides cannot be guaranteed as they depend on the availability of the volunteer drivers. The service is cost-effective and is based on an affordable sliding scale in compliance with our partner agency, Special Transit, which is $2 each way within the city or $4 each way between cities. Please call for more details and schedule your ride today!
