The Medivan is a public transit service that takes passengers from the Downtown Modesto Transit Center to Bay Area Medical Centers, Monday through Friday. This service provides non-emergency medical transportation.

The Medivan is NOT an emergency vehicle and does not serve individuals who require special medical treatment during transportation. However, the Medivan does accommodate people who utilize mobility devices and service animals. 

This service is open to the general public in Stanislaus County and beyond.

Medivan follows a set schedule for traveling across the Bay Area (see map below). Passenger medical appointments must start and end within certain hours to meet Medivan’s schedule.
