Ambulance Service

What do I do if I need emergency transport to a hospital?

Please call 911 for assistance with emergency transportation. From the start of the school year in September until graduation, 24-hour ambulance service is available seven days a week through RIT Ambulance, a New York State certified ambulance.

If RIT Ambulance is responding to another call, an outside ambulance may be dispatched to your location. This outside ambulance may charge a fee for its services.

If you need a ride back from the hospital, your options include asking a friend for a ride or calling a taxi. Two local taxi companies provide non-emergency transportation for RIT students to and from local hospitals and medical offices at set rates payable by cash, credit card or Tiger Bucks.
