Veteran Volunteer Driver

Meet, Salute and Drive a Veteran!

Want to honor Veterans who have our served our country? Whether you are a Veteran or a non-Veteran who wants to say "thank you," we need YOU!

As a Volunteer Driver, you'll take Veterans and their spouses where they need to go. You'll provide necessary life-sustaining or life-enhancing transportation in the metro area for those who are unable to drive or access public transportation. Drive your vehicle or one of Ride Connection’s.

Drive as much or as little as you want! Drive in your own neighborhood or near your workplace. You'll get to know wonderful people and attend excellent trainings (which may even lower your insurance costs). Mileage reimbursement is also available if you drive your own vehicle!

What better way to thank those who have protected our independence, than providing rides to help Veterans and their spouses maintain theirs?

For more information, call Ride Connection today!
