THE TRANSPORTATION GAP:
Over 6,000 teens in Tulsa cannot access the healthcare and social services they need to succeed due to inadequate transportation options. This means that our youth are suffering from decreased mental and physical health, poorer educational outcomes, and lower employment rates. At Modus, we are changing the way that young people think about transportation to ensure that everyone can access the services and opportunities they need to succeed.
TOP REASONS TO VOLUNTEER WITH MODUS:
HOW WE HELP YOUNG TULSANS:
Under our transportation service, Modus matches youth (ages 13-24) who need transportation with passionate, volunteer drivers who then transport the youth clients to and from the services they need using their personal vehicles. We also have an educational program called ModusEd, which teaches local high school students how to use existing transit options, like Tulsa Transit, so they can get to school and part-time jobs. Since beginning in 2017, we have already helped over 400 local youth get to critical health and social service appointments and increased youth ridership on the bus by 30%.

Modus envisions a community in which the barrier of transportation is removed and all young people can access the services necessary to reach their full potential.
At Modus, we are changing the way that young people think about transportation to ensure that everyone can access the services and opportunities they need to succeed. Modus is a two-pronged transportation solution for young people in Tulsa. It enables young people to get to their social service and medical appointments, and ensures they know how to use the city’s transit system.
Our curb-to-curb transportation service enables social service agencies to focus on their core services and ensure young people get the services they need, while ModusEd trains every high school student at Tulsa Public Schools to use the city’s transit system. Together, Modus and ModusEd increase youth transit use, reduce agency spending on inefficient transportation, and increase youth access to healthcare and social services.
Since beginning in 2017, we have already helped over 400 local youth get to critical health and social service appointments and increased youth ridership on the bus by 30%.
We'll work with your schedule.
