Opportunities to be a Volunteer Driver
Volunteer drivers are essential to meet the human service transportation needs of our local communities. They provide an alternative form of transportation for residents when public transportation may not fit their needs. Volunteer drivers may use their own vehicles or be trained to drive agency vehicles. Volunteer Driver Programs are able to serve local residents who need to go beyond Region 1 and typical public transit hours.
A wide variety of organizations utilize volunteer drivers. They also provide a wide variety of trips, ranging from non-emergency medical appointments to trips to work or school, to general errands or other unspecified purposes. Organizations in every county within the region are seeking volunteer drivers. Help veterans get to medical appointments, take senior citizens to the grocery store, or assist in getting people to church.
