In order to accomplish the mission we set out many decades ago, we rely on a web of partners to make our job more efficient and to allow our clients maximum felxibility to serve their individual transportation needs.
Handi-Wheels Transportation specializes in non-ambulatory transportation of clients in need of compassionate, convenient options for moving between home and their medical appointments. We do not specialize in social rides. These rides are best served by our two local partners, Valley Senior Services and MAT Paratransit.
Valley Senior Services offers transportation in the Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo and Dilworth area for individuals 60 and older. Please call 701-356-7433 (RIDE) at least 3-5 days in advance to schedule a ride. For more information, please visit www.valleyseniorservices.org.
MAT Paratransit provides transportation for those who are unable to travel on MATBUS fixed route buses without assistance. Those who are certified as Paratransit eligible under the Americans with Disabilities Act may use this service. The service is available for passengers aged 7 and above.
To reserve a ride on MAT Paratransit, you need a "Special User Card." You can request a free application for this card from Metro Area Transit or download it as a PDF. You will be asked to provide the name of a medical or qualified social service professional who can verify your disability.
It will take us about three weeks to process your application. Your card will be mailed to you when your application is approved; it is valid for three years. The card will include any restrictions placed on your use of the service and a phone number you can call to reserve a ride.
For more information, please call 701.235.4464 or visit www.matbus.com/paratransit.
The City of Fargo keeps an updated listing of all transportation options on their website. This includes private providers. This information can be found at www.fargond.gov/live/transportation/fm-ride-source/local-providers
