Transportation for People with Special Needs
With a fleet of wheelchair accessible vans, Yad Sarah volunteers make it possible for people with special needs to travel from their homes to medical appointments, school, work and social visits. The drivers are carefully selected and trained and help make it possible for the organization to respond to more than 500 requests per day for special needs transportation.
Yad Sarah’s air-conditioned vans are fitted with hydraulic tail lifts, safety anchors, and two-way radios. Some vans are equipped with bulletproof glass.
Transportation services are available for a nominal charge and can be ordered 24 hours in advance from the following transportation centers:
Tel Aviv: 03-681-7222
Rishon Lezion: 03-966-0190
Visitors to Israel needing wheelchair-accessible transportation can request airport pick-up in advance through Yad Sarah's Tourist Services.
