Impacts of Dialysis Transportation on Florida’s Coordinated Public Transportation Programs

(Center Identification Number: 77951)77955

The National Center for Transit Research (NCTR) at the University of South Florida (USF) collected quantitative and qualitative data from Community Transportation Coordinators (CTCs) throughout Florida.  An online survey and a series of personal interviews provided insight into  the following issues:

  • How the supply of and demand for dialysis transportation has changed over the past 5 years.
  • How the increase in dialysis trips is impacting the operations and financial condition of CTCs.
  • How the impacts of dialysis trips differ among rural-oriented CTCs, urban-oriented CTCs, and urban-oriented CTCs which are part of a public transit agency.
  • What unique transportation services are being implemented by CTCs to meet the increasing demand for non-Medicaid- funded dialysis trips.
  • How CTCs are preparing for increased transportation demand associated with increased need for dialysis treatment.
