Residents of Cambridge who have a disability or are 60 years or older can call for door-to-door rides for local non-emergency medical appointments and for weekly trips to the grocery store. Door2Door Transportation by SCM accepts reservations on a first-come, first-served basis beginning two weeks in advance and spanning to as little as two business days in advance.
Non-emergency medical transportation is provided to Cambridge and surrounding communities and to most hospitals and other medical destinations in Boston and Brookline.
The suggested voluntary donation for each one-way ride ranges between $2 for a local ride and $4 for a ride to or from Boston or the Lahey Clinic in Burlington.
All of the vans are all equipped with wheelchair lifts and drivers are required to assist passengers from the front door of their residence to the front door of their destination. Door2Door does not provide wheelchair carry-down services.
A rider is welcome to have one person escort them on the van. Door2Door can be reached at 617-625-1191. Press “0” for the Reservations department.
