Transportation for Medical Appointments

RIDER ALERT
Valley Regional Transit is currently experiencing a driver shortage for some of our specialized transportation services. As a consequence of this shortage, we are having a difficult time scheduling rides for the Rides2Wellness service. We are in the process of getting additional providers added to provide transportation for these services and will continue to provide updates as the situation evolves.

Rides2Wellness Canyon County helps you get to your medical appointments by providing free transportation in Nampa and Caldwell. This program will pick you up from your home and drop you off at your appointment.

This service is not a taxi or limousine. It is a shared-ride transit system that takes multiple passengers to different locations. Rides2Wellness is coordinated with various transportation providers in the community. Valley Regional Transit will schedule your ride with an available provider in your community.

Valley Regional Transit understands that in order for you to recover, you need to make your follow-up appointments. The Rides2Wellness Program provides transportation to participating clinics (access a full list of participating clinics here).

In order to schedule a ride, call the VRT Help Desk at (208) 345-7433 at least two business days prior to your appointment, and provide the customer service representative with your clinic location and appointment time. Once the ride is scheduled, you’ll receive a confirmation call before the scheduled appointment.

Qualifications

You qualify for Rides2Wellness, if:
  • You do not have transportation to your medical appointment
  • You live within the service area in Nampa and Caldwell
  • Your appointment is at least two (2) business days after you call to schedule your ride
