A Commitment to you!
Montgomery County is committed to providing mobility for seniors and persons with disabilities.
We heard from you and we've made major changes to meet your needs better and make your travel more convenient. All of Ride On's buses are wheelchair accessible. The County's transit system is one of the best in the country. It consists of Ride On, Metrobus, Metrorail, and special transportation programs such as MetroAccess and Call-n-Ride.

Medical Assistance Transportation Program
Information Line: 240-777-5890
Trip Scheduling Line: 240-777-5899
The Medical Assistance Transportation grant program provides transportation services for Medical Assistance recipients who reside in Montgomery County, and need transportation to access medically necessary services. This program provides “last resort” transportation for ambulatory, wheelchair and stretcher-bound recipients who have no other means of transportation available to get to and from medical appointments, or whose medical or physical needs prevent them from using such available transportation.
Scheduling Transportation Services
The Medicaid Transportation Office schedules transportation Monday – Friday, (except holidays), between the hours of 8:30 a.m.-12:00 noon. The telephone number for scheduling transportation is: 240-777-5899. When calling, you will be asked a list of screening questions, to determine eligibility. Transportation may be scheduled up to seven (7) days in advance. However, in order to guarantee next-day transportation service, your request must be made no later than 12:00 noon, on the working day before transportation is required. (The office does not provide emergency transportation or “same day” service, with the exception of hospital discharges)
This service is available to Montgomery County residents with eligible, non-restrictive Medical Assistance (Medicaid) to medical services that are covered by Medical Assistance and for which there is no other means of transportation.
The Maryland State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene require medical certification for all recipients. The recipient must demonstrate that they have no other available transportation, or that they are physically unable to utilize other existing transportation services.
To be certified for participation in the program, each recipient must have their physician complete a Provider Certification form.
