American Logistics Company LLC (ALC) announces a partnership with rideshare company Lyft for those requiring non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) and paratransit services.

As part of the collaboration, NEMT and paratransit trips will be scheduled through the ALC dispatch center, which will then dispatch the trip to a Lyft driver in real time.

The ALC dispatch center can also help clients book the trips in advance, validate client eligibility, and validate the requested destination, according to a media release from ALC.

“We are excited to harness the power of Lyft’s robust network to deliver cost savings and increased service levels to our existing clients, and look forward to bringing those same opportunities to our future clients,” says Craig Puckett, president, ALC.

“Lyft’s mission is to connect people and communities through effective, affordable, safe and accessible transportation. ALC has been a leader in the NEMT and paratransit space for the past nine years,” states Gyre Renwick, Head of Healthcare Partnerships at Lyft. “And we’re looking forward to growing our partnership with ALC.”
