Ride Connection, Inc. (Portland, Oregon) – 2013-15 Planning Grantee

Date Published: July 14, 2020

The project used a participatory planning process to identify existing challenges related to transportation for kidney dialysis patients, and how these challenges impacted patient health. It involved the creation of an advisory committee and implementation of a public engagement effort. The project resulted in a pilot program with an NEMT method of grouping rides by neighborhood for trips to the clinic; providing flexible return trips allowing patients to change pickup times as needed; and allowing same-day ride requests.
