One-Way Volunteer Driver

Have an hour? If you have a little spare time, a license to drive, and a caring heart you can change a life by providing one-way transportation for older adults and people with disabilities who are unable to drive and access public transportation.

Provide necessary life-sustaining or life-enhancing transportation services to medical appointments, shopping, volunteering or other personal business.

Drive your vehicle or one of ours. Drive as much or as little as you'd like. Drive in your own neighborhood or near your workplace. You will get to know wonderful people, be able to request reimbursement and attend excellent trainings (which may lower your insurance costs).

Please contact us at Ride Connection to find out how YOU can make a difference!
