3 Transportation Options to Your Non-Emergency Medical Appointment

Finding appropriate and high-quality transportation for non-emergency medical needs can be challenging, and many people are unaware of which options are available in the first place. Today, we will explore the best options for medical non-emergency transportation in Phoenix, including services All Valley Transportation offers and what to know if you opt for options instead.

Because Phoenix (and Arizona in general) are hotspots for medical tourism, medical non-emergency transportation is in high demand. Medical appointments often require a non-emergency transportation service for those with limited mobility or medical conditions that make it difficult to transport themselves. Knowing you have a reliable, safe, and comfortable medical transportation option is a big relief.

This article explains why Phoenix is a popular place to go for medical treatment.


Non Emergency Medical Transportation Phoenix AZAll Valley Transportation provides medical non-emergency transportation services in Phoenix and the surrounding areas. Our top priority is always the comfort and well-being of our passengers—whether they need medical transportation, airport transportation, or any other private transportation services.

Here are a handful of examples of the medical appointments and medical conditions for which medical non-emergency transportation may be necessary:

  • Doctor appointments and routine checkups.
  • Simple and complicated procedures.
  • Hospital stays.
  • Dialysis and other treatments.
  • Blood draws and donations.
  • Medical discharges.

Not only do our drivers treat our passengers with compassion and care, but they are also licensed, insured, and have undergone comprehensive background checks. That way, you can be confident you’re in the best hands. You can also hire the same driver for multiple medical appointments, so you don’t have to start from scratch each time, and you can ride with a familiar face.

In some cases, Rideshare companies like Lyft and Uber can be useful, especially when you need a last-minute ride. However, ridesharing companies might not provide the same level of service or comfort you would receive from a private medical non-emergency transportation provider.

Not to mention, passengers will typically have a different driver each time, which can be a daunting experience for appointments or medical conditions. We know how much it means to see a familiar face during medical appointments, so a rideshare company might not be your favorite option for medical needs.

While this can be a cost-effective solution, it’s important to remember public transit is not always reliable and can be less comfortable. In addition, if you have medical conditions that impact your mobility, using public transit can be tricky.

That said, Valley Metro does offer their ADA Paratransit service with vehicles that have:

“Lifts or ramps on all fixed-route buses and kneelers which allow the front step of the bus to be lowered
Level boarding at all light rail stations
Multiple onboard locations to safely secure mobility devices such as wheelchairs and scooters
Priority seating which is located near all boarding doors and reserved for seniors and people with disabilities
Onboard audio stop announcements on all buses and trains.”


From medical non-emergency transportation services like All Valley Transportation to rideshare companies and public transit, there’s something out there for everyone who needs medical non-emergency transportation in Arizona. However, we encourage you to research each option thoroughly before deciding which service is best for you.

And above all: remember that your comfort and safety should always come first.
