Let our professional drivers and our spotless fleet of fully-equipped vehicles whisk you away to your next non-emergency medical appointment today in style and comfort—all for a competitive price.

Always bring entertainment

While our drivers are famed conversationalists, they also know that a trip to a medical appointment can be a stressful time where riders might appreciate some peace and quiet. Long-distance transportation services in Tacoma, WA can be tedious, so it’s good to have some options to take your mind off things. Be sure to pack plenty of entertainment for the road—this might include a fully-charged smartphone, books on tape, regular books or even comedy recordings, which we find can really help people clear their minds.

Pack smartly

A week or so before your trip, you should start pulling together a list of everything you’ll need for the trip itself, as well as for the appointment you’ll have once you reach your destination. This list should include everything from clothing to entertainment to any medical documentation or supplies you’ll be expected to bring. You can even lay out your suitcase or bags and begin throwing stuff in over the course of the week—just be sure to keep up on your checklist to make sure you remember what you have and have not packed.

Dress for all weather

One of the things about long-distance transportation services in Tacoma, WA is that sometimes we transport clients far enough to where the weather is a little different than it was back home. This is why we encourage clients to dress in layers and to always bring a waterproof coat, if not a warm one as well. That way you can rest assured knowing you’re ready to handle weather conditions you might run into on your travels.

While we also provide event transportation, trips to the airport and shorter transportation to medical appointments for those with disabilities or limited mobility, long-distance ride sharing in Tacoma, WA is one of our specialties at Around the Sound. Additionally, if you and someone you know are heading to the same destination at the same time for medical needs, then we can even help negotiate a rate that’s beneficial to both of you.
