Circulation partners with Lyft for non-emergency transportation

Circulation has partnered with Lyft to expand non-emergency medical transportation options for users, who can start booking rides today.

Circulation users can schedule Lyft rides directly through Circulation's digital transportation platform. The platform aims to simplify ordering processes, improve reliability and reduce costs for non-emergency transportation. More than 1,000 healthcare facilities use Circulation to transport patients in non-acute conditions.

"Circulation seamlessly connects to Lyft's application programming interface, making it easy for health facilities to request a Lyft ride when they need one," said Gyre Renwick, vice president at Lyft. "We're working to remove transportation barriers that previously stood in the way of getting people the care they need."

The Lyft partnership, added to an existing contract with Uber, helps Circulation cover all corners in ride-sharing transportation.
