Medical Related Transportation Services Arranged by Appointment
The NewFIT program does not have sustaining funds. So in order to extend the life of the program we will maximize efficiency as much as possible. This means we may ask that your appointment be grouped with others, and we may also provide part of your trip using the Mountain Line Transit local route system.
Days of Operation:
NewFIT will operate Monday through Friday except New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
NewFIT will travel the boundaries of Monongalia County and will be limited by trip availablity and service demands.
Who Is Eligible?
This program is intended to provide service for medical appointments to riders who have no other transportation options. Riders with Medicare or riders who are able to pay out of pocket may benefit most from this service. For those covered by Medicaid, you will be directed to other resources available to you.
The cost to ride is $10.00 one way, $20.00 round trip. All fares must be paid in advance.
