CATCH’s Transportation Department is committed to moving our community forward. With a fleet of over 30 well-maintained vehicles, CATCH provides “Door-To-Door” transportation throughout Philadelphia in a safe and convenient environment.
CATCH is currently transporting clients for each of the agency’s seven CIRC programs and two Intellectual DisAbility Programs. CATCH also provides transportation services for John F. Kennedy Behavioral Health Center, Jewish Educational Vocational Services (JECVS), Northeast Community Center for Behavioral Health (NECCBH), Consortium, Elwyn, and Horizon House. The agency is also in a partnership with Philadelphia’s Encampment Resolution Program.
Our compassionate and knowledgeable staff have over 30-plus years of experience in the behavioral health field. Each member of the CATCH Transportation Department is Handle With Care certified. Every driver and aide are fully credentialed and trained to handle all of the clients’ needs.
CATCH recently implemented the scheduling application, Booking Portal powered by Routing Box. This technology allows CATCH’s programs to schedule and track their clients’ transportation to the facilities. It also gives them the ability to follow the CATCH fleet and receive real time ETA updates. Additionally, the driver can be informed of any special needs or instruction though the portal.
The CATCH Transportation Department is located at 2401 Penrose Avenue. This site, at the base of the Platt Bridge, allows the fleet to conveniently reach any destination in Philadelphia. The office opens at 5:30am every Monday through Friday. The office remains open daily until the last route is completed.

CATCH is proud to play an essential role in the community during these extraordinary times. The wellbeing and safety of the consumer continues to be a top priority. All CATCH Transportation team members are temperature checked and are required to wear masks while onboard the vans. Plastic barriers have been installed on each van. These barriers protect against a driver from spreading COVID-19 to any of the consumers. The maximum number of passengers has been reduced to eight. This configuration allows for consumers to have unoccupied seats between them during transportation to and from their destinations. The CATCH Transportation Team has been instructed on safely onboarding consumers to reduce the risk of “Crossing” during transportation. The CATCH transportation department asks that consumers do their part as well. All consumers are required to wear a mask while riding on the vans.
