Need a Ride? Lyft is LIVE!!!

…And, TCHNetwork is offering FREE, needs-based rides to medical appointments on Lyft!

TCHNetwork has officially partnered with Lyft to launch a new on-demand transportation option in our region. This partnership will provide residents in San Miguel, Ouray, and Montrose counties a simpler, more convenient way to get to non-emergency medical appointments.

We are thrilled about this partnership. Transportation is the last thing people should have to worry about when scheduling their doctors’ appointments, but it’s something many people in our region struggle with. This partnership is an opportunity to provide those in need with convenient, dependable transportation, while also giving people that become drivers some supplemental income.

We are currently offering free, needs-based rides to non-emergency medical appointments through Lyft for clients who qualify. Individuals should call TCHNetwork at 970-708-7096 or email lyft@tchnetwork.org to get pre-qualified for subsidies and schedule a ride.

TCHNetwork is using a web application called Lyft Concierge to book rides on behalf of clients who do not have a smartphone or who qualify for subsidized rides to a medical appointment. Thanks to the Concierge app, TCHNetwork will be able to pair up passengers and drivers and secure roundtrip transportation.

The traditional Lyft model is also now available throughout the 3 counties. Download the Lyft app and you can request an on-demand ride 24/7.

Interested in helping a neighbor while earning some extra cash?  We still need more Lyft drivers! Visit tchnetwork.org/lyft to learn more. You can earn about $85 driving from Nucla to Montrose or $30 driving from Telluride to Norwood!

We will continue providing services through the Regional Medical Shuttle. Through the Shuttle, we provide 7 trips per month to Montrose and 1 trip per month to Grand Junction from 6 different stops in the West End, San Miguel County, and Ridgway. A list of stops and a full Shuttle schedule are available on our website.  To reserve a ride on the Shuttle, call 970-269-0128.

We’ll see you on the road!
