By offering this benefit to the elderly, individuals with disabilities, and other transportation disadvantaged populations, RHMPI strives to:
- Remove transportation barriers
- Prevent missed medical appointments
- Decrease the impact of chronic disease
- Reduce the costs of inpatient medical treatment
