The Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority (RTA) has partnered with Ford Motor Company to offer Ford GoRide Health (GoRide) on-demand paratransit service in Dayton, Ohio. GoRide, powered by Ford, will be offered as part of RTA Connect. Through this partnership, beginning in May, wheelchair accessible rides can be ordered on-demand to help connect individuals with disabilities with healthcare and other services. All GoRide drivers have been professionally trained to assist passengers and are Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliant. By partnering with Ford, RTA aims to enhance its non-emergency medical transportation, complement existing mobility options, and improve first/last mile access.
Contributed through a partnership between the Shared-Use Mobility Center, ITS America and the Federal Transit Administration’s Mobility on Demand Program.
