Palace Transit is a Medicaid provider. Before a passenger can schedule a ride using Medicaid, the dispatcher will need to verify that travel expenses will be covered by Medicaid. A Medicaid form will be given to the rider and must be signed by the Medicaid provided that was used. If a passenger does not provide this information to Palace Transit, the standard fares will apply.
