About Us

1983 - Commence Operations

Ambitrans Medical Transport, Inc. commenced operations in 1983 with one vehicle providing wheelchair and non-medical stretcher service in Charlotte County, Florida.

1988 - Purchased by Grant Medical Transportation

In 1988, Ambitrans was purchased by Grant Medical Transportation, Inc. and its new owners, Michael and Lorraine Grant. As a former ambulance inspector and emergency medical technician from Massachusetts, Mike was no stranger to the medical transportation industry.

1992 - Grows Non-Medical Fleet and Expands Services

For the next four (4) years Ambitrans continued to grow its non-medical fleet, and in the fall of 1995 expanded service by purchasing two (2) used ambulances to provide basic life support (BLS) and advanced life support (ALS) to meet the demand of inter-facility transfers requiring a higher level of delivery other than non-medical transportation.

Separates Into Divisions

Ambitrans would later divide and separate its divisions: Ambitrans Medical Transport, Inc. would become the ambulance division and Grant Medical Transportation, Inc. (d/b/a Ambitrans) was responsible for providing non-medical transportation through the delivery of wheelchair and non-medical stretcher transports.

Provides Diversified Offerings

During this time Ambitrans diversified its offerings and entered the public transportation market by contracting with Charlotte County to operate the county’s “on-demand” transit system. In 2003, through the acquisition of Gene Freedom’s Transport, the non-medical division entered the Sarasota market to provide Baker Act transportation. These services would later be expanded to include Marchman Act transports.

Expands Corporate Offerings in Southwest Florida

As the years passed, Ambitrans has continued to expand its geographical region and corporate offerings. Today, the ambulance division services Southwest Florida (Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota and Manatee counties.) Our expanding fleet of vehicles is capable of rendering BLS, ALS and Critical Care transportation.
