Community Care Collaborative

A lack of accessible transportation limits a patient’s ability to receive the most appropriate level of care, at the appropriate time, in the best location. For this reason, the Community Care Collaborative (CCC), RideAustin, and Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin are partnering to use ride-share services to help low-income and uninsured Travis County residents access the health care they need.

In March, the CCC received a Transportation Empowerment Fund grant from the Capital Metro Transportation Authority to develop a pilot program with RideAustin through which eligible Travis County residents will be able to request a ride to and from a medical appointment.
