  • Volunteer Driver programs are community-based transportation services in which a friend or neighbor in the community volunteers their time and automobile to help riders get to places they need to go.  In most cases, one must be a resident of the community where the program operates, and have few other transportation options to get to important destinations.  Some programs do ask for a fee or donation for each one-way trip, but others are free services for the riders.
