ABOUT US >

MyRide TN Southeast provides volunteer assisted transportation to essential appointments for adults ages 60 and older that are able to walk independently or with a walker or cane. Volunteer drivers are well-screened, background checked, and trained to provide door-through-door customized assistance. Rides are affordable and adaptable to the needs of the rider. Riders must complete a short screening process and application to begin scheduling rides.

 

Volunteering is simple and flexible enough to meet a busy schedule. Drivers are required to take at least one trip a month (which is a maximum of three hours). Volunteers must be 21+, have a clean, well-maintained vehicle, complete a background check, and attend a training session. Other types of volunteer opportunities may be available as well.
