The Thomas M. Wernert Center offers van or mini bus transportation to its members who attend classes and activities. Members who use TMWC transportation are limited to no more than three rides each week so that others may have the opportunity to attend.

Members must contact the transportation office 24-hours in advance of each ride, both coming to TMWC and returning. (Subject to change due to special circumstancces.)

To schedule transportation, contact 419-242-3000, ext. 101.

Requests may be left on voicemail.

  • Please follow the instructions of the driver at all times.
  • Use a step stool to enter and exit the vehicle at all times.

  • Do not discuss the use of alcohol or illegal drugs or how to obtain them.
  • Do not ask anyone for cigarettes or money.
  • Limit personal cell phone conversations while in the vehicle.
  • Respect the vehicles as if they were your own property.
  • If a TMWC vehicle is bringing you to the center, please be ready. Because it is difficult to be exact about the time you will be picked up, we ask that you please be patient while waiting for the driver to arrive.
  • It is required that you provide 24-Hour notice for rides to the center.

If you do not follow these Guidelines while riding in a TMWC vehicle, your vehicle privileges may stop and TMWC Member Restriction & Suspension Policy will be implemented.
