The impact we’ve made on real people’s lives

Business has increased for us in about a 10-15%, especially in the LA county area. We are hoping business increases in the Inland Empire area where we can mutually help each other out. Michel and Justine are great, always helpful and professional. I really look forward to continue working with everybody at Butterfli. Thank you for your business! -  Jonathan T.

My sisters and I are now taking care of my mother, who needs a gurney to travel. ButterFLi brought my mother home last week, with an oxygen tank. Your driver was concerned and courteous, and would not leave until the day nurse, and more oxygen arrived. Would I use ButterFLi again - I wouldn't hesitate. Thank you, thank you! - Robert A.

ButterFLi has given me the opportunity to take my sister to dinner every Sunday. She is wheelchair bound, and with your team – we can enjoy getting out. - Joseph S.

Our story

Delilah Lanoix and John Harris, owners of SMS Transportation, are experienced specialty fleet entrepreneurs. Having been in the NEMT transportation business for over 25 years, they saw first-hand just how inefficient their industry was for both their riders, but also their fleet. Specialty fleets typically see a 40-50% inefficiency in their business and assisted rides don’t always have a perfect experience.

Delilah and John took it upon themselves to transform the industry by providing more value to their fleets and most importantly to the riders. That’s when ButterFLi was created.

“We saw a vision of how technology and service could rapidly change this industry,” says Lanoix.
