It’s easy to book your rides at Southeastrans
Here’s what Southeastrans needs from you to book your ride:
Your Transportation Options
Non-emergency medical rides are for TennCare services less than 90 miles away. Sometimes you can travel farther, but you’ll need an OK from us. Give us a call in Customer Service. These are shared rides, and you may have to wait to be picked up after your appointment. Thanks for being patient.
Bus passes are available in some cities where bus systems operate. Ask Southeastrans if this is an option where you live. You’ll want to make sure it’s easy to catch a bus and make the transfers to your health care provider or drug store.
Gas repayment could be available if you have, or can borrow, a car or have someone drive you to your TennCare appointments. If approved for this program, your fuel cost will be paid for after the trip.
Urgent trips trips are covered rides that must happen on the day of the request. For example, if you’re discharged from the hospital. Urgent trips aren’t for emergencies. If you need more info on urgent trips, we’re happy to help. Just give us a call or email Customer Service.
Employment and Community First CHOICES Community rides may be part of your support plan. If you’re a member of this program, call your support coordinator and ask about this service. If you’re not sure of your support coordinator’s name and phone number, call or email Customer Service.
