Community Van

Due to COVID-19 and the Governor’s directive to stay at home the SJRMC Community Van is not running at this time.


 

 

The SJRMC Community Van provides convenient and reliable transportation to medical services in San Juan County. This service helps people get to their appointments. There is no fee for using the SJRMC Community Van, and drivers are happy to accommodate those who may have special needs.

Who can use the van?

The San Juan Regional Community Service Van provides convenient and reliable transportation to individuals age 18 and over in San Juan County. These individuals must have appointments to see doctors who have privileges at SJRMC. The van does not transport to dentist appointments or pick up prescriptions.

How far does the van travel?

The van services a 20 mile radius from the hospital and includes Kirtland, Bloomfield, and Aztec city limits.

How much does a ride cost?

There is no charge for the service and drivers are not allowed to accept tips of any kind.

Is the van wheelchair accessible?

The van is wheelchair accessible. Caregivers are encouraged to travel with the patient, however, because the service is “door-to-door” only. This means the client must be able to come outside of the door to their home and be able to get inside the doctor’s office. Drivers will offer assistance to clients down ramps and stairs. 

Scheduling a Ride with the Community Service Van

Reservations for the van are scheduled on a first come first served basis by calling 505.609.2240. Please schedule a ride at least 24 hours before an appointment, though availability is not always guaranteed. Appointments are accepted in advance. Pickup times are available between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
