Cruising Care: New non-emergency medical transport company opens in Stephenville.


A new service in Stephenville is helping those with ambulatory needs get to important medical appointments, locally and beyond.


Cruising Care is a non-emergency medical transport company that operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Owners David and Nicole Baskett started the company after recently experiencing the difficulties of finding transportation for their own aging family member.


“I lost my father recently, but it was while he was sick that we realized there was a great need for something like this,” David told Beneath the Surface News.

“We struggled with finding transportation for my dad for everything from bringing him home from the hospital to finding a way to get him over for Christmas dinner.”

Cruising Care transports ambulatory patients and those who need a wheelchair, reclining wheelchair or stretcher to wound care, dialysis, chemotherapy and medical appointments, hospitals/ER visits and day surgeries.


The company will also transport hospital patients back to their home or to an assisted living/rehabilitation facility.


The company operates two vans equipped with oxygen and a bariatric chair for patients up to 450 lbs.


Pricing is based on the distance, duration and specific needs of the individual.


The Basketts are no strangers to the transportation business.


Two years ago, they opened Bussin’ Rides in Stephenville.
