Sonia Ashford is the owner of Ashford Insurance, an independent health insurance agency specializing in Texas Medicare insurance.

We come across quite a few seniors in the HEB and surrounding areas that need some help with transportation to their doctor, hospital or to just pick up a prescription.

Ashford Insurance has compiled a small list of a few sources that can provide transportation assistance. We have included internet links and phone numbers to help you get in touch with these transportation providers.  We do not endorse any of these providers but just wanted to get a handy list out to the seniors who may need assistance:

CCFW

 

Catholic Charities’ Transportation Program

If a Hurst, Euless, or Bedford resident is in need of medical transportation anywhere in Tarrant County, they can call the Catholic Charities’ Transportation Program and request a trip. This county-wide medical service, primarily funded by United Way, is a donation-based program that assists anyone without transportation, not just older adults or individuals with disabilities. Trips are scheduled as space allows and are not guaranteed.  Service is provided Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. – 6 p.m. For more information, or to request a trip, please call 817-336-8714.
 
NETS
 

NETS

The Northeast Transportation Service (NETS) offers door-to-door transportation services to residents of Bedford, North Richland Hills, Keller, Grapevine, Hurst, Haltom City, and Euless who are disabled or 55 or older. Trained drivers are available to assist passengers in getting on and off vehicles. This service is available in Euless from 6 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and costs $1.50 per one-way trip. Trip requests are taken from 7 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. You must give at least two business days’ notice in advance of the trip date.

Texas Medicaid & CHIP Transportation Services

The Texas Department of State Health Services provides rides to those without transportation and on Medicaid or in the Children with Special Health Care Needs. Covered trips include rides to the doctor’s office, dentist, hospital, drug store, or any place that provides medical services covered under Medicaid. You must call MTP at least two business days before the day you need the ride. Clients in most of Texas can call MTP at 1-877-MED-TRIP (1-877-633-8747). This is a free call-in Texas. Clients in the Dallas/Fort Worth Service Delivery Area (SDA) should call LogistiCare at 1-855-687-3255 Toll-Free to arrange services.
