If your appointment is urgent, MTM will set up your ride. 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 1-844-399-9466, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to schedule an urgent ride. MTM does not schedule emergency transportation. Call 911 if you have an emergency.

You will receive the level of transportation that is best for your physical and medical condition. We may consult your healthcare provider. Based on your needs, we will offer you:

  • Mileage reimbursement if you, a friend, or family member can drive to the appointment
  • Fixed route bus tickets
  • Sedan, van, or taxi services

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.
