Who will drive me on my trips?

Where can I go?
You can go all over Washington State. Some common locations we transport clients to are Spokane, Wenatchee, Yakima, and Seattle. You must be a resident of Chelan, Douglas, or Okanogan counties to qualify for services.
Will Trancare drivers take me to multiple locations while on my trip?
Not unless each location is approved ahead of time by People for People. If you have more than one medical appointment on the same day, please let People for People know when you are scheduling your transportation so that more than one “leg” can be scheduled into your transportation schedule.
Will my trip be shared with another eligible rider?
Yes, sometimes trips are grouped together if clients are going to the same location or two different locations that are close to each other.
Are Trancare vehicles wheelchair accessible?
No. Trancare volunteers do not have wheelchair accessible vehicles. If you can transfer from your wheelchair into a vehicle, we can most likely still transport you. Please inform the person scheduling your ride if you will be transferring from a wheelchair so we can make sure to provide you with a vehicle that can fit your folded up wheelchair into it.
