Volunteer to Drive

We think it’s wonderful you’re thinking of becoming a volunteer driver.

Volunteer to Drive Ride Connection Customers

Time Commitment

We prefer that you are available to drive at least one hour per week. Our typical hours of operation are between 8am and 5pm, Monday through Friday. You can dictate your schedule within these hours and we will work around it. A transportation coordinator will contact you weekly to make requests.


You can choose where you would like to drive. Some people choose to drive in their own neighborhood while some volunteers are comfortable driving in all areas of the tri-county region.


Each volunteer driver must:

  • Have had their driver’s license for 5 years or longer
  • Pass a criminal background and DMV check
  • Complete driver training courses (available in classroom or online)
