Ride N Care Expands Transportation Options for Seniors with Lyft Concierge

Share Article

Ride N Care is now working with Lyft to give healthcare facilities, seniors, medical patients and their families even greater flexibility in scheduling safe, reliable transportation. By adding traditional rideshare services to its door-through-door transportation platform, Ride N Care makes getting around even easier for those who don't drive.

Ride N Care, Inc., the leading logistics platform connecting Seniors, medical patients and healthcare facilities with certified healthcare professionals offering safe, reliable door-through-door transportation + companion care, announced today that it is working with rideshare pioneer Lyft, Inc. and has added Lyft’s Concierge Service to Ride N Care’s suite of service offerings. With Lyft Concierge, both individual customers and healthcare facilities using Ride N Care’s platform for pre-scheduled transportation will now have the additional option of requesting traditional curb-to-curb rideshare services too. Ride N Care’s customers won’t have to create a new account to take advantage of Lyft Concierge and will continue to have a single, 24/7 point of contact for all their transportation needs on Ride N Care’s 1-800 phone number or at ridencare.com. As with all of its platform services, Ride N Care will schedule the transportation and collect payment directly from the customer.

“The addition of Lyft Concierge broadens Ride N Care’s service platform offerings significantly and gives our customers – both individuals and care facilities – an additional transportation option when deciding which Ride N Care solution makes sense for them,” said Danilo Toskovic, Ride N Care’s Co-Founder and CEO. “And after evaluating a number of potential rideshare partners, it was clear to us that the dedicated healthcare team at Lyft understood our needs and was willing to give us the support we need to make sure Ride N Care’s customers have the best transportation experience possible.”
