Frequently Asked Questions
How much notice do I have to give to schedule transportation?
As much notice as possible is best. If the appointment is 2 weeks or 2 months away, go ahead and call Transportation. Same-day or next-day appointments can be difficult to add to the schedule, but we will do our best to help you keep your appointment.
Can anyone utilize AARC Transportation?
AARC Transportation is private transportation provided to any client of AARC. Transportation to the agency to complete intake or update eligibility can be coordinated, but this must occur before any medical appointment transportation.
Where can AARC transport me and how will I get home?
