We are on a mission to reduce transportation barriers to health care for 1 million patients by 2021!
Over 3.6 Million Americans miss or delay health care appointments each year due to a lack of transportation!
The lack of consistent and affordable transportation options disproportionally affects our low income and older adult populations. This creates a barrier to health care that deepens the inequities affecting our populations most at risk of being vulnerable. As we all continue to age, this number will continue to grow unless we come up with innovative solutions now. Join our mission and help us bridge the gap between health and transportation.
Bridging the Gap Between Health Care and Transportation
Do you know someone in your neighborhood, church, school or job who needs transportation assistance? Why not offer to give them a ride and show us how you are taking action by using the #Lifts4Lives on social media.
Transportation is a basic but critical step to receiving care.
Patients without reliable transportation are often forced to forgo preventative care and only seek help in medical emergencies, increasing costs for the patient and the larger health care system. Unfortunately, the cycle of missed appointments only gets worse as it often means an increased likelihood of worsening health conditions, more treatments and more expensive payments to continue care. Help us break the cycle and pledge to give a lift today!
We Can Fix This
Missing an Appointment is Expensive!

Providing Transportation is not!
Even if we put $100 into transportation for 3.6 million people, we still would not reach the astronomical cost of missing appointment for patients, providers, and the American people.
