What is Elder Transportation Services?
There is a market gap in the local senior transportation industry including senior transportation service providers. Elder Transportation Services looks to improve the disadvantages to the senior transportation industry.
Elder Transportation Services provides private pay Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) and Paratransit services for seniors and seniors with a disability throughout Austin, Georgetown, Round Rock, Cedar Park and Leander, TX.
Elder Transportation Services understands that there is a growing demand for senior transportation services and looks to improve the disadvantages that many communities and local neighborhoods face each year. Seniors and seniors that live with a disability and that are under special in-home care or in-personal services require additional services to help them in their daily lives. Thus, these seniors and disabled seniors do not have the means to rely on themselves to commute to and from certain places for personal needs and wants.
Elder Transportation Services provides special accommodation to senior and disabled seniors that are hearing and visually impaired and others that have walkers, canes, and wheelchairs. Our vehicle is not equipped with wheelchair accessibility, but we are looking to explore that market opportunity in the near future. Our vehicle accommodates seniors or disabled seniors that are able to move in and out of a wheelchair into a four-door sedan vehicle.
Elder Transportation Services provides a preliminary employment hiring process. All drivers are fingerprinted and screened for criminal history. This safety mechanism ensures driver and rider safety during each trip and reduces the liability and risk due to unforeseen circumstances.
