Can an Ambulette Service Help Me Keep My Independence?

If your mobility needs are changing or you simply don’t drive, your transportation options can feel extremely limited. Without the ability to drive, you’re often stuck waiting at the bus stop for hours or worrying about your loved ones’ schedules. It’s not always practical to rely on family members and friends for a ride, and even though the Americans with Disabilities Act requires buses to be accessible, public bus options are often limited or difficult for people with disabilities to use.

Whether you need full-time senior care transportation or just the occasional ride to doctor appointments or the grocery store, there’s an easier way to do things! With the help of ambulette services, you can keep your independence while taking advantage of accessible, affordable transportation — 24 hours a day. 

Reliable, Affordable Transportation

If you’ve already read our piece on ambulette vs. ambulance services, you already know that an ambulette service doesn’t handle medical emergencies. Rather, you can use an ambulette service for non-emergency medical transportation, trips into town, and much more.

Older adults and other people with changing mobility needs often feel like they have to arrange their transportation around someone else’s schedule. It can be difficult to ask someone to make a trip all the way across town just to give you a ride, so you might be used to brushing off your desire for an independent outing. But when you call an ambulette for transportation to medical facilities or to travel home after a long day at work, you’ll be able to relax knowing that you’ll have a ride whenever and wherever you need to go — without the need to ask friends and family members for a favor.

Customized to Your Needs

Some adult living communities provide senior transportation services as part of your rental package. Other people rely on their local Area Agencies on Aging to find a ride. However, these services aren’t always what you’re looking for. At Cathay Express Transportation, our ambulette services are tailored to your specific needs. Whether you need additional space for a large electric power chair or want to bring a friend or family member to your appointment for support, we’re here to accommodate you, not the other way around!

Assistance Available… But Not Required

You can enjoy both independence and peace of mind with our ambulette service because our friendly staff is trained to handle all types of situations. That means if you need assistance, they’ll be right there to help —  but if you don’t, there’s no need to worry, either. 

Another advantage of a professional ambulette service is that drivers are flexible and willing to work with you, no matter what type of request you might have. For example, if you’d like, your transport providers can give updates about arrival times to loved ones, which can put everyone’s mind at ease.
