TransCita, a non-emergency health services transportation company in Puerto Rico, recently announced the launch of its new gift card, available in denominations of $10, ranging from $40 to $150.
“With the launch of our new TransCita gift card, we are establishing a new standard in the gift card segment,” said Jorge E. Ruiz-Román, president of TransCita. “Puerto Ricans can now give the most important gift to a loved one: health.”
The TransCita gift card has no activation fees and is good for transportation to non-emergency health services throughout Puerto Rico.
It is available at participating Farmacias Aliadas, Farmacias Plazas, 24/7 Convenience Stores, Anytime Convenience Stores, To Go Convenience Stores, Pueblo supermarket at Ciudadela, participating Total gas stations, SuperMax and Ralph’s Foods Warehouse.
“We want our customers to feel comfortable with a product that has no charge for those who receive it and is easy to use,” said Ruiz-Román. “This year, TransCita is happy to help Puerto Ricans with their holiday shopping thanks to our new gift card, which will give them access to health transportation services throughout the island.”
TransCita was born out of a surging need for services aimed at the elderly population in Puerto Rico which, according to recent statistics, is growing rapidly.
“According to the 2010 Census, 14.5 percent of the Puerto Rican population is over 65. In addition, 42 percent of island families have a member from that age group. These numbers reflect a large need from a population sector that wants to take care of their relatives but has a hard time balancing this with the responsibilities of their jobs,” he said. “On the other hand, the elderly population also wants its independence and not to have to take so much out of their children’s time.”
