A Rural Taxi with Medical Purposes

In the Province of Castellón (Spain), the lack of transport offer challenges the quality of life of local communities and complicates the access to healthcare infrastructures for vulnerable groups. To facilitate the access to care services, the Provincial Government of Castellón set up in 2018 the ‘Rural Taxi with Medical Purposes’.

This ‘Rural Taxi with Medical Purposes’ aims at facilitating the access to healthcare for older adults living in municipalities counting less than 5,000 inhabitants and was developed by the Provincial Government of Castellón as part of its repopulation strategy “REPOBLEM”.

By developing an on-demand transport offer dedicated to people with restricted mobility but care needs, the Castellón Province increases the quality of life in the area, in particular for older adults who can more easily live at home if they want to. Discover how the service was developed and how it works for users in our good practice.
