Frequently Asked Questions
What is Modus?
Modus is a two-pronged transportation solution for young people in Tulsa. It enables young people to get to their social service and medical appointments, and ensures they know how to use the city’s transit system.
Our curb-to-curb transportation service enables social service agencies to focus on their core services and ensure young people get the services they need, while ModusEd trains every high school student at Tulsa Public Schools to use the city’s transit system. Together, Modus and ModusEd increase youth transit use, reduce agency spending on inefficient transportation, and increase youth access to healthcare and social services.

What is Modus doing to keep everyone safe during a Modus ride?
The safety of our passengers and drivers are very important to us. Modus is committed to providing safe, reliable transportation during COVID-19. We have modified our policies and procedures to adapt to the current health crisis. Major changes to services include, but are not limited to the following:
Can my Modus driver take me somewhere other than my appointment?
Can my Modus driver stop or drop me off somewhere other than my appointment?
What if I’m traveling with an additional passenger? (e.g. child, parent, etc.)
Keep in mind, due to COVID-19, only passengers who are considered essential to the success of the appointment are allowed in the vehicle, with a maximum of two (2) riders per vehicle.
I need to bring my child. Do I need to bring a car seat?
At this time, clients are prohibited from bringing their own child safety seats. This is to ensure that each child safety seat is properly disinfected after each use. Notify your care provider two (2) days before the ride and Modus will provide one for you.
I’m an existing Modus client. Will I need to sign any new forms before my next Modus ride?
If you were enrolled before June 1, 2020 and have not filled out the Rider Agreement During COVID-19, COVID-19 Acknowledgement, and Liability Waiver forms, these will be required for you, your parent/guardian (if you’re under 18), and/or any additional passengers you plan to bring with you to sign before your next scheduled Modus ride.
What is the mandatory health screening?
Modus will call you and to conduct a mandatory health assessment 1-2 days before your ride is to occur. Make sure you answer all of the questions truthfully and to the best of your ability. If you fail to complete the assessment by 5:00 PM the day before your ride, your ride will be cancelled. This screening process is to ensure the health and safety of everyone in the vehicle, therefore Modus will not make any exceptions.
What symptoms should I look for when conducting my own medical self-assessment?
Deep, dry cough
Shortness of breath
New loss of taste or smell
Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
