Providing Local and Long Distance Medical Transportation

Founded by two motivated servant-leaders, Anthony Cherry and Charles Doty, Regal Transportation is a rapidly growing for-profit company proudly serving the local and long-distance transportation needs throughout Illinois.

Officially launched in 2019, roots for Regal Transportation go back many, many years.  First introduced while working together at Primerica Financial Services, it wasn’t long before Anthony and Charles became best friends. Bonded by a common entrepreneurial passion, the two became inspired to create their own personalized community-based service. 

In 2012, Anthony and Charles founded Alpha & Omega Transit, a non-emergency medical transportation service that experienced rapid success and boasted offices in Decatur, Peoria, Springfield, Danville, and Davenport, IA. However, after almost six years of continued growth, serving thousands of patients and an untold number of hospitals, nursing homes, and senior communities, Anthony and Charles made the difficult decision to restructure their company in response to dramatic shifts in the Medicaid brokerage system. 


Through restructuring, Anthony and Charles have been able to deploy a more controlled growth strategy allowing them to develop stronger, more customer-intimate relationships with area facilities and residents. Unlike other services operating as a curb-to-curb service, Regal Transportation is a door-through-door service committed to safely escorting residents from their room or lobby to a clean, comfortable, and modern ADA-compliant wheelchair accessible vehicle. On arrival at their destination, Regal’s trained staff will escort your residents to check-in.

Rather than focusing exclusively on volume and profits, Regal Transportation is keenly focused on providing exceptional and timely customer service with the compassion and care your residents deserve.

We are continuously striving to implement effective strategies for enhanced training, integrated technologies, and managerial support and communication.  Because we provide local and long distance transportation, effective planning and communication between dispatch and key facilities is paramount. 

We continuously work on enhancing our scheduling and traffic management in an effort to reduce travel and wait times while increasing efficiency.  We work to adapt and implement policies and procedures to support our mission, to analyze and advise on transportation issues, evaluate scheduling conflicts, negotiate and correspond with carriers, vendors, and strategic partners.
