Lack of transportation options is often cited as the number one issue contributing to isolation. We’re looking for volunteers to help seniors remain active in their community, by helping them get around. No car, no problem! Our partner agencies have volunteer ride programs for seniors who need help getting around.

  • Have a valid driver’s license

  • Have a clean driving record

  • Willing to undergo Criminal Record check

  • Willing to commit to at least 6 months

  • Respect confidentiality of clients

  • Have some daytime availability

Here’s what they can offer:

  • Opportunity to combine your own errands with your volunteer driving

  • Training

  • Help you get started and signed up

  • Flexible scheduling

  • Reimbursement for mileage expenses or fully covered cost of Modo carshare booking during volunteer shift

  • Additional insurance coverage

  • Opportunity to meet new people and connect with others in your community

  • Opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to lives of seniors

  • Opportunity to explore your community

  • Perks and appreciation
