Using the Provider Search Interface

Using the Provider search engine is easy. First, select a provider type by clicking the appropriate radio button.

Next, select the geographic area in Ohio that you want to search in.

Optionally, select a service type from the list of services by clicking on it.

Optionally, if you know all of part of a specific provider's name, enter it.

Click the "Search" button.

Adding more input fields

If the list of matching services is too long, you can narrow it further by using some additional tools. These tools are available in the "Narrow Your Results" pane to the left of the service list.

Search Within These Results

Enter a word or phrase, and then click the "Search" button. The original list of services will be changed to show only the services that contain ALL of the new words you entered.

Narrow Search Results by Distance

You can narrow the list of services to show just the services that are within a distance radius of a ZIP code. Enter any valid ZIP code in the "of zip code" text box. Then click the "Show" button. The list of services will be changed to display only the services that are located within the calculated distance from the ZIP code you entered.

Narrow Search Results by Service Features

Display only the services that offer specific features that are important to you. For example, would you like to limit the list of services to just those that are on a public bus route and offer a specific payment option? After clicking this link, you'll see a list of features offered by the services in the list you were just viewing. Choose as many of the features as you'd like by checking the box next to those features. Click "Modify Results" and the list of services will change to display only the services that have ANY of the features you selected. Services that have more matching features will appear higher in the new list than services that have fewer matching features.
