Additional Programs

We are continuously finding new ways to increase mobility.

Ride Connection provides services that meet the unique needs of our community. In addition to our core programs, we provide the following services:

Ride Together Mileage Reimbursement

This program empowers riders to recruit their own drivers. Each driver with the Ride Together program is reimbursed for miles driven. Customers schedule their rides directly with their drivers at times that work for both parties. Available in Multnomah and Washington Counties for older adults and people with disabilities. Call 503.226.0700 to get started.

Dahlia Dialysis Transportation Pilot

With a grant from the Administration for Community Living, Ride Connection started this program in order to address the needs of individuals who need regular transportation to dialysis treatments. Through an inclusive process we got at the heart of the unique transportation needs of this group and are now working to meet these needs through accessible transportation while educating the community and healthcare providers. Call 503.226.0700  or click here to learn more.

Shared Vehicle Program

The shared vehicle program was implemented in order to utilize our vehicles to their full potential. We offer a vehicle to individuals, agencies, or groups when they are not in use, primarily on the weekends.

We provide the vehicle and the necessary driver training and you provide the driver. Our buses and vans seat up to 14 people so your driver is not required to have a special license. For more information, contact Dean Orr at or 503.528.1752.

Veterans Helping Veterans

Helping veterans and their spouses gain access to transportation by recruiting volunteer drivers who are veterans themselves. To volunteer, call 503.528.1738. To access service call 503.226.0700.

Access Transit: Fare Relief

To assist in increasing the number of low-income clients served, this program provides grants of up to $25,000 in TriMet fares for qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit and Community Based Organizations (CBOs). Ride Connection administers the program and awards the grants to qualified organizations. Find more information and apply.
