About

Drive-a-Senior West Austin's mission over the last 32 years is to enrich the lives of seniors by connecting them with volunteers in our community.

Our volunteers pick up seniors from their homes and drive them to medical appointments, grocery shopping and other quality of life errands. Drive just one-way or round trip.

Most rides take 1.5 to 3 hours and are on average 10 miles in distance. Many of our seniors enjoy having children, friends, and pets ride along.

There is no long-term commitment, but we sure do appreciate them!

No wheelchairs or elderly citizens to lift. A million dollar insurance policy covers each of our drivers.
