codFISH is an all-volunteer organization, with telephone dispatchers who take client calls and drivers who drive clients to their appointments and return them back home. The service is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00am to 4:00pm.
To make a reservation, call the codFISH line at (315) 463-5158 Monday through Friday between 9:00am and 4:00pm. Those in need of transportation should call at least a week before their appointment to allow time for the volunteer dispatchers to find available drivers. Should you need to cancel or reschedule, please call the codFISH line as soon as possible.
When you call, you will reach a dispatcher or the dispatcher’s voice mail. If you reach the voice mail, speak clearly and leave your name and phone number for a return call. Please inform the dispatcher if you have special needs.
Volunteer drivers will call clients to confirm the time and location for pick up and drop off as promptly as possible. Drivers can only transport ambulatory clients. Clients are responsible for any parking fees and should bring their handicapped parking tag if needed. All clients must sign a general release form.
