About

Hiawathaland Transit is administered by Three Rivers Community Action, a private non-profit corporation that works with community partners to address basic human needs of people in our service area; thereby improving the quality of life of the individual, family, and community.

The community driver program is intended to provide individuals with accessible transportation that is suited to meet their specific needs. One-way, round-trip, and multi-stop rides are usually available; reservations are required.

Community drivers are those who volunteer to spend their personal time using their own personal vehicles to transport residents of Rice, Wabasha & Goodhue Counties who are unable to utilize public transportation services.

Community Drivers should be passionate about helping others and have a strong desire to serve those is need. Additionally, it is essential for Community Drivers to be responsible, energetic, and loyal to all individuals affiliated with the Community Driver Program.

Drivers will transport individuals to and from such destinations as medical appointments, shopping, entertainment, supportive services, volunteer work and/or recreational activities.

As a driver you will be reimbursed for mileage at the current IRS rate; you can set your own schedule, drive as little or as much as wanted, and select preferred areas of travel - you can even bring a friend or family member along! You will obtain training opportunities including Defensive Driving, Passenger Assistance, Abuse Preventions, and First Aid and CPR Training. Being a Community Driver may also earn you discounted insurance rates through your insurance provider.

Volunteers must be at least 21 years of age, have a current and valid driver’s license and proper vehicle insurance. They must also pass criminal background, driving record and local reference checks. Interested parties can call 866-623-7505 to request that an application be sent to them.
