Arm-in-arm and door-through-door transportation to help older adults live independently.
Rides are provided by volunteers using their own cars. Normally, rides are provided to local health care offices and round trips are completed in a reasonable period of time, but some trips require a volunteer’s entire day and a significant expenditure of fuel. Partial fuel reimbursement is available to drivers.
Support the Ride Partners program
There is no charge for our transportation services. We do ask riders to pay for mileage on a sliding scale if possible, and we ask the community to support this important program. If you can help, consider giving to the fund to pay for volunteer drivers' gas. Call Linda Figallo at 410-544-4800 for more information.
Older Driver Safety
Keeping older drivers safe on the road is important to us. Volunteer members, Randy Marshall and Jack Pettit, teach the AARP Safe Driving Course at our office. Anyone interested in the course is welcome, and you could have your insurance premiums reduced by 10% as a result, depending on your carrier. Safe Driving Courses are scheduled several times during the year. The next course will be held on April 4th. Call 410-544-4800 to reserve your seat in the 10am-3pm course.
We always need drivers and hope you will consider participating. You'll help others, meet wonderful new people, have fun, and earn ‘credit in the bank’ for the time when you might need a ride or a helping hand around the house.
