Innovate Memphis – 901RideChoice

901RideChoice is a free phone service for older adults and people living with a disability who need local, reliable transportation options to get to their destinations.

Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Courtney McNeal, Chief of Staff for Innovate Memphis, who highlights the nonprofit dedicated to delivering civic solutions and provides some context for their designing, launching and administering the 901RideChoice program. 901RideChoice aims to solve transportation barriers in Shelby County, offering Memphians free rides to a variety of resources that are also labeled as social determinants of health (SDOH), including behavioral health appointments, case management sessions (medical or non-medical), and food access points (WIC, food banks or grocery stores).

During the interview, Courtney talks about the process and how individuals can schedule transportation, how the program is funded by Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) and Uber Health, and how 901RideChoice also powers Rides to Wellness, a non-emergency medical transportation program.
