Community Cars is slightly different from our former RideConnect program. We are now using volunteer drivers to provide rides using a 4-door Honda Accord that RideWise leases and maintains. Our volunteers will provide rides as their schedules permit, and as the vehicle is available. The savings we achieve by using volunteer drivers lowers the per mile cost of each ride to $2 per mile.
Community Cars riders can call RideWise to schedule rides on a first come, first serve basis with advance notice. There may be times when you will ride with another passenger. There may also be times when we ask you to be a little flexible on the date and time of your trip. This is so we can provide as many trips as possible. Rides can be scheduled between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday.
How can I enroll?
- Complete the Passenger registration
- Set up a transportation account with a check, credit card or cash
- Rides are deducted from the account or charged to the credit card on file
How much does it cost?
Rides are charged at the rate of $2 per mile. The cost of the trip depends on the distance traveled. Personal care attendants (PCAs) can travel for free when accompanying registered passengers.
