March 17, 2009 - PRLog -- Express Medical Transporters, (EMT) a current provider of non-emergency transportation services in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties has announced expansion of daily routes to include Pasco County.  Effective immediately, the company is officially the only provider of approved to operate in all three counties in more than 40 years, a welcome addition for a population that continues to grow.  

A recent report released by the Center for Urban Transportation Research at the University of South Florida estimates the potential transportation disadvantaged population in Florida to grow to more than 8.25 million by 2015 and that they will need more than 15.7 million trips annually.  Welcome news for EMT whose non-emergency transportation business will inevitably increase.  As a leader in the field, the company is focused on a standard of service that is built on trust and integrity and that sets the bar for all others to follow.  It is this unwavering focus and adherence to strict operational guidelines that set them apart from the competition as they are increasingly available to those who a need safe, reliable and cost-effective option for travel.  Experienced EMT drivers are skilled at transporting individuals who are unable to drive (due to a mental or physical disability) to and from important doctor appointments, specialized treatment facilities (including dialysis and cancer therapies), dental appointments or other location.  EMT also specializes in assisting those confined to wheelchairs or other mobility aids that often have unique transportation needs.

A welcome alternative to traditional transportation, EMT is also one of only three officially contracted companies servicing Medicaid and Transportation Disadvantaged programs in Pinellas County, works with multiple insurance companies and also accepts private pay.  

“Until now, individuals needing to be transported across county lines were required to obtain two separate transportation providers who were licensed to originate in that county,” says Jeanine Blake, owner of EMT.  “We are excited to know that our hard work has paid off and we can now pick up and drop up each of our clients.  This helps them to alleviate the worry of additional scheduling and coordination on their part and we in turn will gain increased businesses as a result.    
   
With the goal of ensuring safe transport to and from any destination, EMT’s addition of the Pasco County service area will go far in creating continuity for their growing roster of clientele.  With a growing fleet of vehicles now on the road in Tampa Bay EMT is already looking for inroads into other areas that would complement its current offerings.  

“As reports and information continues to emerge from a number of transportation research organizations we are constantly reminded of the ever-growing needs of this too-often forgotten group,” says Blake.  “We know that those in need of non-emergency transportation will inevitably change the face of transportation and we are proud to be well on our way to helping them immediately.  We look forward to our continued growth.”
