Ready Ride – Ages 18 – 64 – MA Coverage

About the Program

West Central Minnesota Communities Action, in partnership with PrimeWest,  is able to offer our Ready Ride Volunteer Driver Program to adults aged 18 – 64, who have current Medical Assistance coverage.  Ready Ride is available to residents in Douglas, Grant, Pope, Stevens and Traverse counties.

 

Key Points

  • Rides can range from short trips to longer trips for various medical appointments, to pick up medications or grocery shopping
  • Riders must reside in our 5 – county service area: Douglas, Grant, Pope, Stevens & Traverse
  • Rides must originate within 5 – county service area: Douglas, Grant, Pope, Stevens & Traverse
  • Rides may go outside of the 5 – county service area for appointments
  • Volunteer drivers use their own vehicles to provide the rides
  • Scheduling rides should be done a week in advance which allows time to find a volunteer driver
  • Guidelines, in response to COVID-19, are included for both volunteer drivers and riders
