Volunteer Transportation

Do you...

  • Like to drive?
  • Enjoy meeting new people?

Drive a senior to their medical appointment!

Transportation is one of the top problems facing King County seniors. More and more seniors are turning to the Volunteer Transportation Program for help. Unfortunately, we simply do not have enough volunteer drivers to meet their needs. We urgently need to recruit more volunteers.

Volunteer Drivers:

  • Provide rides using their own vehicles
  • Choose the times, days, and areas they wish to drive
  • Receive reimbursement for mileage and parking costs
  • Receive supplemental liability insurance at no cost
  • Do no heavy lifting or bearing of weight
Our program attracts a wonderful mix of people of all ages and from all walks of life...retirees, working individuals, stay-at-home parents, snowbirds. Rain or shine, they show up on doorsteps throughout their communities to provide a ride and a helping hand. What makes our program different from buses, taxis, and ACCESS vans, is that our drivers provide not only a ride but act as an escort as well. Their dedication and compassion have created a program that's out of this world. Our clients don't know what they would do without their help.
