Ride N Safe Medical Transport, LLC

Growing Quickly to Meet the Needs of North Central Texas

Surgery Center Transportation

Ride N Safe Medical Transport, L.L.C., or Ride N Safe, was founded in 2007 by Wes Mourer and Cliff Montemayor in Granbury, Texas. As the founders, and working paramedics, of Granbury/Hood County EMS, they personally encountered the transportation challenges of local residents navigating "to and from" healthcare services locally and in the Fort Worth area.  

Manning a ground ambulance, they quickly recognized the need for a viable and affordable transportation option for those needing non-emergency medical transportation. Since the beginning, Ride N Safe has transported people of all ages who are bed-ridden, confined to a wheelchair, and/or recovering from major surgery, life-altering injuries, and chronic illnesses – whenever and wherever they might need to go.

Due to growing demand, Ride N Safe Medical Transport quickly expanded from a local operation in Granbury and Hood County, on an “as-needed" basis, to providing non-emergency medical transportation 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, 365 days/year in Ft. Worth’s medical district and Hood, Parker, and Somervell counties.

In 2010, a second station opened in Cleburne, and in 2014, a merger with Fort Worth’s A.C.E. Non-Emergency Transport added a third station in North Richland Hills. The acquisition of A.C.E. expanded Ride N Safe’s service area to include all of Tarrant County as well as surrounding counties on the western side of the DFW Metroplex (Erath, Hood, Johnson, Palo Pinto, Parker & Somervell).

In 2016, Ride N Safe moved to a much larger station in Fort Worth and began growing its 12-van fleet to meet increasing demand. At the same time, fleet maintenance was brought in-house for preventive service and repairs.

By the end of 2020, Ride N Safe had 29 vans in its fleet. Ride N' Safe also proudly, and according to CDC guidelines, completed over 1,000 COVID-related transports - positive patients and  Persons Under Investigation (PUI). Drivers were already versed in infection control protocols but received additional training, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), sanitizing supplies, and were COVID-19 screened daily. 

June 2020, Ride N Safe opened a branch office in Waco. Initially, the office started with one van. By December, the Waco fleet had already grown to four vans and one COVID-dedicated van.

December 2020, Ride N Safe opened a branch office in Denton. For now, there are two vans dedicated to its newest Service Area.

Many of the area's medical facilities and agencies have come to rely on the Ride N Safe team to meet their non-medical emergency transportation needs - scheduled and unplanned.

From one location to another, regardless of disability, medical status, location, or destination, Drivers strive to provide a safe and timely ride, performed courteously, and with compassion. Special attention is given to the fact that most passengers are facing medical challenges, long recoveries, and are dealing with high levels of anxiety, stress, and uncertainty.
