Escorted Transportation ( PDF )

 
This section is divided by providers that charge a fee (“private”) and volunteer programs that offer free rides. Volunteer  transportation programs use volunteers who provide rides in their personal vehicles. Whether a private companyor a volunteer program, each provider sets its own guidelines. When contacting different programs, ask who they serve andhow they operate, including their driver screening and training policies. Describe your personal needs in addition to information about the trip.  (Such needs might include assistance getting out of the car, or navigating to the doctor’s office.)  
Note that most volunteer driving programs are unable to accommodate wheelchairs/scooters.
 
** Providers with an asterisk * offer wheelchair accessible vehicles. **

Fee-Based Providers


Villages

Villages are local neighbors-helping-neighbors organizations offering a wide variety of services and many offer volunteer transportation to their members. (They do not offer housing but support aging in place.) Some villages charge an annual membership fee. You can find out if there is a village in your community by going on the County’s website:  www.montgomerycountymd.gov/village  and looking at the village map tab.
