Fun, Flexible Opportunity To Provide Rides To Older Adults

Save to Favorites

Coming of Age Austin

Drive a Senior connects volunteer drivers with seniors who choose to continue to live independently, but have given up driving. Last year, they served almost a thousand Central Texas seniors by providing more than 27,000 rides to places like the grocery store, doctor’s appointments or fun social events. As the aging population in our community grows, more volunteers are needed to meet the increasing demand for rides. Volunteering is easy and very flexible. Even if you have a small gap in your schedule, you can make a difference. You must be 18 or older, able to provide a valid driver’s license and car insurance, pass a background and driver records check, have your own vehicle to drive (we do not provide vehicles), complete an online application and attend a brief orientation session. There are locations throughout Austin and Central Texas, so you can volunteer close to home. We encourage families to drive together as well. Contact us today so we can provide more older adults with the opportunity to live independently!
