Volunteer driver with grateful customer

Have a license to drive and a little bit of spare time? Live or work in East Multnomah County? Volunteer as a U-Ride Driver! Right now, there are older adults and people with disabilities in your neighborhood in need of transportation. As a volunteer driver, YOU can be the vital link for people to get to life-sustaining or life-enhancing destinations like medical appointments, shopping, visiting loved ones, or the Senior Center.

Drive your vehicle or one of ours! Drive as much or as little as you want! Drive in your own neighborhood or near your workplace. As a driver, you'll get to know wonderful people and attend excellent trainings (which may lower your insurance costs).

Doing something so simple can make such a difference in someone's life.
