Ready Ride

About the Program

Ready Ride logoThe Ready Ride program is a volunteer-based program serving the counties of Douglas, Grant, Pope, Stevens, and Traverse. The goal is to provide transportation services so older adults can continue to live in their home as long as it is safe for them to do so. Transportation needs could include short rides to appointments or to pick up prescriptions, or longer 1-2 hour trips for medical appointments.
