Ride Connection

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 4 people are interested

Want to make a difference, but don't have a lot of time? Live in Multnomah, Clackamas, or Washington Counties in Oregon?

Help people without changing your routine at all!

Whether you're headed to the gym, work, the doctor's office, happy hour, church, or just to spend time with friends, you can be a vital link in helping older adults and people with disabilities where they need to go,

We'll send you a "care package" of Ride Connection information, flyers and postcards to share with others in the community.

If you're friendly, polite, and want to help people maintain their independence, we'd love to connect with you. We want people in every neighborhood to know that Volunteer Drivers are needed. Bonus points for getting the word out on social media!

Ride Connection links responsive, accessible transportation with community need. Volunteer Drivers take older adults, Veterans, and people with disabilities to medical appointments, grocery stores, senior centers, cancer treatments, dialysis, or anywhere else people need to go. If you're a people person, let's join forces!
