Transportation Tool Kit Helps Ten County Residents Plan Medical Trips
Getthere, a mobility management program of the Rural Health Network of South Central New York, recently announced the release of their new website. The website, www.gettherescny.org, provides a plethora of helpful resources, such as Transportation providers, rideshare information, planning documents, and other publications and information pertinent to the community of healthcare professionals, transportation planners and individuals seeking transportation information. The website is being touted as a “one-stop shop” for transportation information for professionals and residents of ten counties across the southern tier of New York. Transportation information is provided for the following counties; Broome, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Otsego, Schuyler, Stueben, Tioga and Tompkins.
The highlight of the website is an online tool kit for trip planning in the ten county region.
Area residents and professionals will be able to enter addresses for both starting point and destination, along with options for individual needs, such as wheelchair access, and receive a list of options for transportation, as well as price ranges. The options include volunteer providers when available, private and public transportation options, as well as contact information for transportation providers. Additionally, users will be able to access the Medical Answering Services link for Medicaid transportation to set up rides online.
