TRANSPORTATION SERVICES

Transportation 

United Disability Services operates a fleet of 30 vehicles that drive more than 600,000 miles each year providing safe and accessible transportation for our passengers who attend the agency’s adult services programs including SociAbilities, Vocational Services, BraVo!, the adult services program in Kent and job sites within the community.  Transportation Services is responsible for the curb-to-curb transportation needs of approximately 200 passengers each day.

Our lift-equipped vans are also available to community organizations on a contract basis.  UDS has met the special transportation needs of a variety of community events including the National Super Kids Classic soap box derby race for children with special needs, the Bridgestone Invitational and events sponsored by Summit Racing. Contract rates are available for special transportation requests.

Our courteous and professional drivers receive training or certification in CPR and first aid, behavior management, vehicle safety procedure, defensive driving techniques, the proper handling of blood borne pathogens and in recognizing the signs of abuse and neglect.  All of the agency’s full-time drivers hold a commercial driver’s license (CDL).

All agency vehicles are regularly maintained by a staff mechanic and inspected annually by the State Highway Patrol to ensure the safety of each and every vehicle.

Contact Transportation for more information or with scheduling questions. Our dispatchers will do their best to accommodate any special requests for specific pick up or drop off times due to work schedules, but because of the complex scheduling of daily bus routes this may not always be possible. Non-emergency in and out-of-county service is available to qualified individuals who need transportation to medical, outpatient testing, dialysis and chemotherapy appointments.
