How Are We Doing?
My husband and I have been riding RTA Mobility since 2015 and we are very pleased with the service and excellent care they provide! You have special drivers, dispatch workers, call center staff and personnel that go beyond to meet our needs. My first experience to obtain certification as an RTA Mobility Rider was extremely professional and very caring. I highly recommend this service.
– Ms. Peggy, RTA Mobility Rider
