Care Attendants & Companions
A spouse or family member may only ride for free if they are a personal care attendant. If they are riding for their own medical care, they are subject to the fare structure of the Rides to Wellness program which can be detailed upon request. We welcome your service animal and/or personal care attendant, but does ask that you disclose this information at the time you schedule your ride. Any animal other than a service animal (as determined by the American’s with Disabilities Act) must be contained within a certified pet carrier. Any animal must be kept with owner at all times. It is not the drivers’ responsibility to care for animals during appointments.
