Of The Family
Papuga Transportation, Inc. is a family owned and operated,
door-to-door, non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) service based out of White Lake, MI, predominantly operating within
Oakland County. In need of NEMT because of a workplace
injury, owner and founder, Kevin Papuga was able to see, first-hand, the need for a caring, punctual, and affordable transportation
service for those going to medical appointments in our local community.
After a full recovery following almost two years of weekly appointments, in 2007, Papuga Transportation was founded. Equipped with rear-entry manual ramps, our fleet
of caravans are capable to transport individuals needing
wheelchair-bound transportation, as well as those who can
ambulate on their own.
