Non-Emergency Transportation Certificate

This for-hire service includes the transportation of persons on stretchers, using wheelchairs, or whose incapacitation makes it impractical for them to be transported by a regular carrier, and who neither need, nor expect to need medical attention during transport.

These vehicles do not provide emergency transportation. The drivers must have a for-hire chauffeur registration, and the vehicles are inspected.

In order to provide non-emergency services a Non-Emergency Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity must be obtained. Chapter 4, Article III of the Miami-Dade County Code defines this type of transportation as transportation of persons on stretchers or using wheelchairs, or whose handicap, illness, injury or other incapacitation makes it impractical to be transported by a regular common carrier such as bus or taxicab service, and neither need nor expect to need medical attention in route to their destination. Vehicles are modified and equipped for wheelchairs or stretchers.
