Beginning in August of this year, Ride Austin, a local ride sharing service, will partner with the Community Care Collaborative to provide free transportation to medical appointments or pharmacies. The doctors or pharmacies must be part of the Community Care Collaborative. Funding for this service is being provided by a grant from the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the Dell Medical School at the University of Texas.
Ride Austin is a non-profit transportation network company that serves Travis and portions of surrounding counties. The medical transportation service will initially be available only to residents of Travis county.
