As of 2015, Dial-A-Ride is the most popular service that Easy Lift Transportation provides, and tens of thousands of people with limited mobility use it every year. Only those who are unable to use the mass transit system due to physical or cognitive deficiencies are eligible to use this service. Because the Dial-A-Ride program is subsidized through donations and grants, it allows Easy Lift Transportation to charge relatively low prices for one-way rides. The service doesn’t give priority to people based on the purpose of the trip and it works on a first-call, first-served basis.
Through the Loaner Vehicle Program, an organization can send a candidate to Easy Lift Transportation and have him train to become an Easy Lift Transportation volunteer driver. Once the training is complete, this candidate can borrow a vehicle to transport the clients of his own organization. Because Easy Lift Transportation provides insurance, vehicles and training at no cost, the only expenses include covering gas consumption.Learn more about Mail & Shipping
