Transportation

Our Services

Friends in Deed offers a variety of transportation programs for our clients.  The majority of our volunteer drivers provide their own vehicle and will drive Green Valley residents to medical appointments.  They will also take Green Valley residents to Tucson for medical appointments.  Some restrictions apply.  

At present we provide transportation services to residents in select areas of Sahuarita. 


Our wheelchair van is available to clients for doctor and dentist visits in Green Valley, Sahuarita and Tucson.  All Wheelchair bound clients and clients with certain medical appointments require a companion.    


Please call at least three business days in advance for Green Valley trips and one week in advance for Tucson trips to arrange for transportation.

 

Social Vans

In our eleven passenger van we take clients to Trader Joe's each week.  We also alternate trips to Park Place Mall and Tucson Mall.


We also pick up clients at their  residence and provide transportation to Walmart/99 Cent Store, Safeway and the Food Bank in our mini van. 


Due to limited space and safety concerns, clients with walkers will not be permitted on social vans.  Canes are acceptable.


Call 520-625-4424 Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM.  Certain restrictions apply.
