WHAT OUR DRIVERS AND CLIENTS SAY

"Great Company for hard workers!
I joined Travelon Transportation about a month ago, as a young guy I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into, but I was willing to put my all into a job. Travelon turned out to be a perfect job for me. The first month is tough, but soon after hard honest work it pays off completely. The owner helped me through working and looked out for me as I got through that first month. He also was there for me when I had any questions and helped me understand anything that was confusing to me at the time. I would recommend Travelon to my closest friends. The hours are as long as you want to make them. The more you work the more you make. The people you meet are great and the days go by fast since you get to travel around the metro area! It's also nice that you get to become more familiar with a lot of places. Soon I'm sure I'll never feel lost anywhere!

Pros: You're your own boss, very nice compensation, management that cares about your progress, helping those in need."

"Independent contractor will pick own hours and which days to work. You determine how much you want to make each week by how many hours you work.

I’ve been an independent contractor for Travelon for 12 years. I enjoy the independence of choosing my own hours and which days of the week to work. Business is very steady, you determine how much you want to make by choosing your schedule of hours, you start from your own home with your van. Travelon scheduling system provides you with the trips each day, at the end of the day you simply drive home and you’re done for the day. No office to go to or manager looking over your shoulder. Very rewarding job helping people."

Driver

“...I’ve been with Travelon Transportation for more than 5 years. I would like you to know how blessed I’ve been to receive top of the line quality care. Travelon Transportation understands my disabilities and needs. I’ve came up with some words that truly describe Travelon Transportation—here are some of them: Travelon Transportation has been a real blessing to me with friendly, caring, efficient, trustworthy, dependable, committed, ethical, client centered and dynamic drivers and staff. Top of the line vehicles—I feel like I’m riding to my medical appointments first class. And the drivers are so professional. They truly care about each client and their needs. When I call to schedule a ride I’m greeted by people who not only schedule my ride efficiently, but ask how I’m doing. I find so much comfort and safety in Travelon Transportation, I want to share how wonderful they are with others…”
