MEDICAL APPOINTMENT TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM
EXPANDING TO MEET THE NEED
Any Needham resident, over age 18, who needs transportation to a local medical appointment can call the Council to request a “curb-to-curb” ride at no charge.
Volunteer based transportation has been provided for over 25 years; now….if a volunteer driver is unavailable…the Council will provide a fee-based ride through Uber and/or Lyft paid for with Council funds and supported by a grant from BID Hospital-Needham.
Rides may be requested to local hospitals, including BID Hospital-Needham, Newton-Wellesley, doctor’s offices, physical therapy appointments, labs for blood work, etc. in the Needham, Newton and Wellesley areas. We are not able to provide transportation into Boston or Brookline.
