B&B Wheelchair Transportation

B&B Transportation LogoB&B Wheelchair Transportation is a private provider of non-emergency medical transportation based in Hancock. It provides both local and long-distance (Marshfield and Mayo Clinic, among others) service to handicapped and non-handicapped customers. In the Keweenaw, B&B also provides direct services to institutions such as the Houghton County Medical Care Facility and Cypress Manor nursing home.

B&B has a special arrangement with UP Health System and Beacon House to provide medical transportation for Houghton, Keweenaw, and Baraga County (depending on location) residents to healthcare institutions in Marquette County (Ishpeming, Negaunee, and Marquette) on Thursdays. One round trip accommodating up to four passengers and two wheelchairs is made each week. Departure and arrival times are determined by the appointment schedules of passengers. Advance notice is required for this service, and seats are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.

Two wheelchair ramp-equipped vans are available for handicapped passengers. A full-size bed is available for those who cannot sit upright, along with televisions and seating for accompanying passengers. Regular passenger vehicles may be used for non-handicapped passengers.

Regular services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For regular service, advance notice is preferred, but trips can generally be arranged at any time.

The company will provide references on request, and drivers are fully licensed and certified.
