Being able to get from one side of town to the other isn't a luxury that's afforded to all, which is why Ford Mobility launched a service called GoRide - a fleet of shared vans that offer non-emergency rides for those looking to get to and from doctor's appointments.

Unreliable or inaccessible transportation is one of the root causes of missed doctor's appointments, which results in an estimated annual loss of $150 for the healthcare industry. GoRide hopes to combat this, through offering a on-demand service for those with chronic health issues.

Each GoRide driver has undergone specific training to ensure they're comfortable with transporting and caring for patients, this means they can offer to assist people in and out of the vehicles.
