Like talking to people and sharing resources that can enhance their quality of life?

At Ride Connection, we're passionate about helping older adults and people with disabilities get to the places they need - and want - to go. Transportation is a basic human need, and you can help people get connected!

Last year alone, Ride Connection and its network of service partners provided over 500,000 rides in the tri-county area and taught more than 250 people how to use public transportation. About two-thirds of Ride Connection drivers are volunteers!

By representing Ride Connection at community events, resource fairs, and other places in your neighborhood, you can open doors for people who need transportation, as well as potential supporters and volunteers.

If you want to meet new people and make an impact, contact us to learn how you can get involved!
