Mission Statement

Ride Assist Naperville (RAN) was founded in April 2016 to provide affordable and dependable transportation for seniors in our community, and their caretakers, to their medical appointments. RAN is a program under Naperville Seniors in Action (NSIA), a 501(c)(3) organization.

Description

This exciting initiative pairs seniors who need rides to and from their medical appointments with a volunteer driver to take them to the appointments, wait with them, and then drive them back home. Seniors (minimum age 60) must complete an application prior to requesting their first ride. Rides are by appointment only; a minimum of 5 business days advance notice is required. We ask for a $12 donation for each round-trip ride. No money is given to the driver and no tipping is allowed; an invoice is sent the following month. All of our insured drivers are volunteers who use their own vehicles to provide transportation.
