Whitworth University City Cab/Health Ride Program

City Cab offers after-hours transportation (4:30 p.m.-8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, and all weekend) to local urgent-care facilities and emergency departments. This service is for students to utilize when the health center is closed. The cost for the rides is covered by the Student Health Fee. Transportation is also available on a case-by-case basis to other community resources, such as the VA, Frontier Behavioral Health, The Emily Program and addiction rehabilitation meetings such as AA and Al-Anon.

Always call 911 if you experience a life-threatening emergency.
