Volunteer Driver for Seniors

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Travelers Aid Society of San Diego



The goal of the Travelers Aid Volunteer Driver Program is to provide safe and reliable transportation so that San Diego County Older Adults can remain healthy and independent. Volunteers will be serving their community and in turn have the satisfaction of helping those in need.

Volunteer Driver services are designed to meet the needs of non-driving, older (60+) adults living in San Diego County. Many local older adults either cannot drive themselves, have trouble accessing and utilizing public transportation, and/or cannot afford private services. This portion of the SenioRide program was designed for clients who need door-to-door assistance and/or access to essential services to remain healthy and active within the community.
