Monthly Transit Passes – Effective February 15, 2022
You can now pick up monthly bus passes to access transportation to your Medicaid-covered services three days a week at two locations. You will NOT receive a bus pass if you don’t have a bus trip log or attendance printout AND a future appointment scheduled in MTM’s system. Medicaid recipients eligible to receive a monthly bus pass can now pick it up on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday:

Transportation to your Medicaid-covered appointments must be scheduled prior to receiving your bus pass. Before coming to DWSS, make sure that you have previously called MTM to schedule transportation for your future appointments. You will NOT receive a bus pass if you don’t have a bus trip log or attendance printout AND a future appointment scheduled in MTM’s system. We cannot schedule transportation to your appointments at any of the DWSS District Offices. If you need to schedule a ride, call 1-844-879-7341.
Effective July 2022, the gas mileage reimbursement rate is changing to $0.22 per mile. This adjustment was made to bring the rate in line with Internal Revenue Service guidance for medical travel and to ensure the long-term sustainability of the non-emergency medical transportation benefit. Even with the reduced reimbursement rate, we encourage members to use this flexible mode of transportation, which complies with all social distancing recommendations. If gas mileage reimbursement is your current approved mode, your only other option is public transportation, if it is available in your service area.
MTM provides rides for Nevada Medicaid members. You must be attending a covered Medicaid service. You must have no other way to get there.
Call us at 1-844-879-7341 before your appointment. We encourage you to call us three business days in advance. If you call with less notice and the trip is not urgent, we may not be able to set up your ride. We schedule routine trips Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
When you call, please be ready to provide:
You can also use our MTM Link member mobile app or web portal to view your trip details. At this time, you cannot schedule new rides through MTM Link due to the high number of public transit trips in Nevada. Click here to register today!
If your appointment is urgent, MTM will set up your ride with less than five business day’s notice. An urgent request is considered to be any illness or injury that requires immediate treatment to prevent a serious decline in your health. This may include a hospital discharge. Call us at 1-844-879-7341, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to schedule an urgent ride. MTM does not schedule emergency transportation. Emergency transportation requires medical care during the trip. Call 911 if you have an emergency.
You will receive the level of transportation that is most appropriate for your medical condition. We may consult your health care provider. Based on your needs, we will offer you:
We may be able to reimburse you, a friend, or a family member to drive you to your appointments through the MTM Currency program. Reimbursement funds are provided through a Focus Card™. This is a reloadable debit card issued by U.S. Bank. Ask us about this program when you call to set up your trip. If you need support for your Focus Card, call U.S. Bank Cardholder Services at 888-863-0681.
