Rides Around Town and Beyond

BHV can arrange for private and insured drivers. There is an hourly rate for BHV drivers and additional mileage fees for travel outside of the city limits. BHV can also arrange transportation with local cab companies or private car services. Please call the office to request transportation as much in advance as possible - preferred lead time is at least one week prior to the date of your ride. If your plans change and you need to cancel or reschedule, please let us know as soon as possible.

Doctor Prescribed Rides

Membership includes three "Doctor Prescribed Rides" (DPR) per calendar year at no cost to you. A BHV driver will bring you home after a medical procedure when the physician or hospital requires an escort. Call the office to schedule in advance.
