Long Distance Medical
The Long Distance Medical program, a division of North Country Transportation, acts as liaison between those needing transportation for medical appointments including dialysis, cancer treatments, and other medical services performed in hospitals out of their area, and volunteer drivers. The program provides mileage reimbursement to the volunteer drivers who use their own vehicles, but would like to offer them more incentives as a means of recruiting and retaining volunteers. A wheel-chair accessible vehicle is also needed for those clients who cannot transfer from wheelchairs to regular vehicles.
