Volunteer Driver Services
This service is free and is a door-through-door transportation option. The free service is made possible, in part, by members of the community who have volunteered to use their own vehicle to provide rides to seniors. The ride is requested through the Transportation Coordinator and then added to our Ride Scheduler system. Our staff will contact the rider as soon as the volunteer driver accepts the ride. Drivers will provide assistance to vehicle, including carrying of bags, groceries and waiting at doctor’s office. Our driver will then return the senior home.
The primary focus of our Volunteer Driver Service is to provide rides to medical-related appointments. If a volunteer driver is not available for the appointment, members of the program are encouraged to use the other Oceanside transportation options
