Ride Connection

Ride ConnectionThe overall goal of the Ride Connection project was to study the issues involved with transportation for dialysis treatment and to deploy inclusive transportation strategies in improving these life-sustaining trips. As the number of people in the Portland area requiring dialysis has increased, providing timely and effective transportation has become more of an issue.

This objective is derived from Ride Connection's mission to link accessible, responsive transportation with community needs. These include: identifying and further documenting participant needs, discussing and evaluating a range of solutions to meet these needs, involving participants and stakeholders in weighing tradeoffs and recommending solutions, and reporting back to participants and stakeholders about the actions taken and their impact.
