If you have waited more than 15 minutes after your scheduled pick up time, call us at (866) 481-9699.
In the event that a transportation provider is late, a dedicated phone line is available to inquire about the status oftheir ride. The line is called the “Ride Assist” line, please call this dedicated number and “DO NOT” call the transportation company directly. IntelliRide must document the time of your call and dispatch the closest vehicle, so we reduce your wait time.
The reservations center is closed on the following days:
- Memorial Day
- Fourth of July
- Labor Day

Your request to schedule transportation will not be completed and the agent will advise you that you must call back during the day after the holiday and IntelliRide will apply the “same day/urgent” request policy if the request applies.
Making a reservation when you don't know the pickup time
Once your appointment is finished, you should call the “Ride Assist” phone number and request transportation be sent to pick you up. The transportation provider will be dispatched and will have up to ninety minutes (90) to arrive for the member’s return ride. However, IntelliRide’s goal is to always send the closest vehicle,which will reduce wait time. Call the “Ride Assist” phone number as soon as you know the member will be ready for pick up, we want to reduce wait time as much as possible.
Urgent and same day trip requests
Such trips should be true urgent conditions (not 911) where a physician is requiring you to be seen the same day or the next day. We understand that appointments open and we are dedicated to working closely with Facilities and provide the member will the most efficient service experience. IntelliRide will verify that the doctor’s officehas an appointment schedule with you, confirming nothing has changed before the trip request is scheduled.
IntelliRide is dedicated to supporting the medical community, it is important for us to work together and understand that purpose of the “urgent trips”, which is less that the 48 hours noticed required when scheduling non-medical transportation:
- Doctors’ appointments deemed urgent by physician
- Dialysis (any change to the schedule, please notify IntelliRide immediately)
- Wound care
- Chemotherapy (any change to the schedule, please notify IntelliRide immediately)
