ACT works with a coordinated network of transportation providers to serve as the “provider of last resort” for curb-to-curb non-emergency medical transportation within the ACT region. You are encouraged to contact other services that you might be eligible for, before requesting a ride through our Community Rides program. Rides are provided at no charge, but riders are limited to 10 one-way trips per month. There is no guarantee that your request will be fulfilled.
Because funding is limited and trips are not guaranteed, we encourage you to research multiple transportation options to meet your needs.
Ride requests are made by contacting TripLink at 603-834-6010 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Rides must be requested by 5 PM the business day before the ride date. Your ride request is posted to a confidential “Trip Board”. ACT’s network of providers will then have the opportunity to view the trip requests and determine if they are able to fulfill that request. Riders will be notified within 2 days of their trip if their request has been selected.
The purpose of the application is to allow you to provide ACT with the information necessary to determine if you are eligible for this service, as well as the contact information we will need to reach you. Submit your completed application to email@example.com.
TripLink is the region's centralized transportation call center.
