Joy Ride Transport was established in 2010 by Ted Cochran, who had a vision of providing a professional, safe, reliable, and compassionate transportation service for the elderly and special needs population.

Our mission is to be an extension of your family. We understand the challenges of arranging special-needs transportation for your patients to medical appointments, dialysis, nursing facilities and rehabilitation centers. Our American Disabilities Act-compliant vehicles are safe and comfortable, and our carefully screened, CPR and First Aid certified drivers treat clients with dignity, compassion and respect.

From our humble beginnings of Ted parking 2 vans in his drive way in Des Moines, Joy Ride’s fleet has grown to 40+ vehicles and 50+ drivers and our service area has expanded to Ames, Cedar Rapids and Iowa City.

Whether you need assistance arranging transportation for seniors, individuals in wheelchairs or others who simply need a little extra help traveling, trust Joy Ride Transport for pleasant, professional, prompt service. We are passionate about what we do and treat our clients like family.

Call us today at 515-331-1100 to make a reservation for yourself or a loved one. Your joy ride awaits!
