Mission Statement

Mobility Matters provides mobility management services throughout Contra Costa County by matching riders to transportation providers that meet their individual needs. Mobility Matters operates volunteer driver programs that provide free, one-on-one, door-through-door rides for seniors and disabled veterans who cannot access other forms of transportation.

Description

Mobility Matters offers two volunteer ride sharing programs: Rides for Seniors and Rides 4 Veterans. The Rides for Seniors program specializes in transporting ambulatory seniors (age 60 and older) in Contra Costa County who are trying to age in place rather than become institutionalized. The Rides 4 Veteran's Program transports veterans that are any age that are disabled in Contra Costa County. The Rides for Seniors and the Rides for Veterans programs offers free, one-on-one, door-through-door rides provided by screened and trained volunteer drivers. These rides are primarily for the purpose of obtaining medical care, groceries, and other basic necessities.

The staff is so caring. They help Seniors and Veterans get free rides to their medical appointments. Once a week I can volunteer to help make sure a person in need is able to get a ride. It usually only takes about 3 hours to help and the people you help are so grateful.
