The Road to Independence van program transports low income youth, seniors, those with special needs, veterans and other transportation disadvantaged who live in South King County and North & East Pierce County. These individuals are going to or from their job-sites or work related activities.
Drivers are needed Monday-Friday, 6am- 6pm. Volunteer drivers use a company vehicle. Drive as much or as little as you like.
In operation since 2002, the Road to Independence is non-profit. We have been providing no-cost ride service for individuals who otherwise, would be unable to self-transport. The individuals we transport love their jobs and are truly grateful for the services we provide.
Volunteer drivers are offered the opportunity to attend OSPI Certified Training course for a Class B Commercial Driver License with School Bus endorsement at no cost.
