Volunteer drivers provide a vital connection to individuals in their community by giving a ride to medical, social services, or other daily needs. If you have access to a reliable vehicle, enjoy driving and meeting people, become a volunteer driver! Drivers are offered reimbursement at the standard IRS mileage rate for each trip. It’s a great way to feel good, giving back to your community.
When you become a volunteer driver for RCT, you provide cost effective transportation to community members in need of a ride.
As a volunteer driver, you decide how often you can offer transportation. Most trips are centered on medical needs, providing access to appointments like dialysis, radiation treatment, physical therapy and more. You may also provide access to other appointments, rides to senior centers, affordable food locations, counseling, prevention treatment, or various human services programs.
While most appointments are local, others can be as far as Dartmouth or Boston. You can determine the range of transportation service you are able to provide.
