Under the Hood: Our Medical Transportation Fleet

Posted by On Time Ambulance on 5/5/16 2:18 PM

We are proud to have the largest service-area footprint of any private ambulance company in New Jersey.

Our 120 transport vehicles are deployed in three operational depots: Roselle, Voorhees, and Fair Lawn. These include: caravans, minivans, passenger vans, Mobility Assistance Vehicles (MAVs), Basic Life Support Ambulances, and Specialty Care Transport Units (SCTUs).


We transport clients in each of the state’s 21 counties and therefore take our fleet maintenance program very seriously. Our certified mechanics maintain all of our vehicles on-site to minimize breakdowns. We also keep a 15 to 20% backup reserve fleet of each type of vehicle to account for routine maintenance and business surges.

All vehicles are capable of safely carrying portable oxygen cylinders in accordance with the NJ Health Department’s definition of “crash worthy.”

We use special equipment for transporting bariatric patients in wheelchair vans and ambulances including Stryker Power-PRO XT and XPS expanding side-rail systems, Stryker MX-PRO bariatric transport cots, Wraptor Mattresses, and extended-width wheelchairs.

All vehicles have navigation devices with lifetime map updates. Drivers report trip status using on-board mobile data terminals, thereby keeping dispatch free to focus on routing trips without distraction.
