Ride With Us

Residents with transportation needs originating in Leslie, Knott, Letcher or Perry County may schedule a trip through our dispatch center. Public Transportation is based on available seating and requires extra time to prepare driver schedules. Therefore, reservations can be made up to 72 hours in advance, but no later than 3 p.m. the day prior to the trip. Public Transportation services are available to anyone that does not have a Medicaid card, or those that have a Medicaid card, but do not meet eligibility requirements for our Non-Emergency Medical Transportation service.

To Schedule Public Transportation:
Call Toll Free 1-866-813-0072
Monday-Friday between 8 am – 4:30 pm

How to Schedule a Trip

When calling our toll-free number 1-866-813-0072, please be prepared to provide our reservationist with the following information:

  • Name as it appears on your Social Security card (no nicknames), or if you are a Medicaid recipient, the name that is on your medical card
  • Date of travel
  • Address of your pick-up and destination locations. Be specific, including suite and/or building numbers, doctor’s name, etc.
  • Desired arrival time
  • Return time to your place of origin or arrival time to your next appointment/or destination
  • If needed, reserve a seat for a Personal Care Attendant (PCA), child or guest accompanying you
  • If needed, specific details of specialized transportation needed, such as a lift van, etc.

Companions, such as a friend or family member with the same ride origin and destination, are allowed to ride with you. However, a reservation must be made for your companion to ensure space is available. Without advance notice, the companion may not be allowed to go due to the lack of available space. Your companion must have the same origin and destination and cannot have a separate appointment.

LKLP is committed to serving persons with disabilities. We back that commitment by providing services that make public transportation both easy and pleasant for those that may need reasonable modifications. Please find our Accessibility Notice and Reasonable Request Form at the links below.
