How to Minimize Discomfort During Long-Distance Travels

how-to-minimize-discomfort-during-long-distance-travels Transportation is an extremely important policy issue for those with disabilities. People with disabilities have consistently described how transportation barriers affect their lives in important ways. As such, we at EliteTrans make it a point to offer high-quality and dependable non-emergency medical transportation in Midlothian, Virginia, to ease these challenges.

Since air travel can be quite difficult for clients with physical disabilities, especially those who use a wheelchair, most opt to travel by land. However, this option may cost more and may take a lot more time to get to the destination. As such, our NEMT team would like to share some tips on how you can maximize comfort for yourself or a loved one when traveling long distances.

Before traveling, see to it that your destination offers medical equipment rental to prevent potential damage to your device. Some airlines mishandle medical equipment and most luggage, so don’t expect your equipment to be working properly after the flight.

Aside from that, we would also like to suggest checking your destination’s transportation route and schedules. Some cities have accessible taxi options but depending on traffic, they may take a long time to arrive and tend to be expensive. You may also choose to rent your own accessible van from our paratransit in Virginia.

If you or a loved one require specialized assistance, we are the team to call. We provide transportation assistance for clients with special needs of all ages. It is our pleasure to adjust our vehicles and carry items that will help make riding our vehicles more comfortable for you, especially if you are sensitive to certain stimuli. Your wellness is what drives our mobility assistance and wheelchair transportation services.

Learn more by calling 804-464-2681. We serve the entire state of Virginia.
