About

Do you enjoy spending time with older adults? Do you know how to get around on public transportation, and like to share your knowledge with others?

Join our team of Ride Ambassadors! As a Ride Ambassador, you'll lead fun group trips on TriMet for older adults and people with disabilities. Riders' Club trips usually originate at a local retirement community or senior center, and go wherever the group has decided they want to go! Past destinations include free concerts, movies in the park, events at the Portland Art Museum, urban wineries, lectures, Pioneer Courthouse Square, Lan Su Chinese Garden and more!

Prior to each trip, Ride Ambassadors are equipped with a trip plan and TriMet fare for the whole group. Not only are trips fun, but they give riders an opportunity to experience public transportation in a relaxed and non-threatening environment.

Ride Ambassadors determine their own availability, and trips occur at varied times. Contact us for more information!
