What to Look for to Ensure a Safe Ride
Seniors that are looking for non-emergency transportation can be overwhelmed by the number of options that are available to them in their local area. However, what is often more surprising is the many differences that can be found between the service providers that are available. To ensure a comfortable and safe ride, here are a few things you should look for to ensure a positive experience with any chosen transportation provider.
Does the Company Specialize in Senior Transportation?
Unlike some public transportation options, many privately-owned companies have made it their mission to provide safe and comfortable accommodations for senior travelers. This will often include wheelchair accessibility and drivers that are accustomed to working with an older customer base. At Deano’s Senior Transit, we know the importance of great transportation and started our company after being let down by the other options available.
What Safety Systems do Drivers use?
In order to facilitate a safe ride, it is important to ensure that any transportation provider you partner with takes the time to train their drivers to provide an enhanced environment of safety. On top of this, it may be beneficial to determine if they have GPS routing and a dispatch system in place. Deano’s Senior Transit follows all of these safety systems to help provide the best experience possible for our clients or their loved ones.
What Kinds of Vehicles are used?
This is likely one of the biggest questions you should ask yourself throughout your search for a safe ride. Some vehicles that you will find may have been modified to provide wheelchair accessibility while removing standard safety features at the same time. Deano’s Senior Transit only uses MV-1 vehicles that were built from the ground up with wheelchair accessibility in mind.
