COVID-19 and MyRide: Volunteers Still Needed!

MyRide older adult riders still have many essential appointments they have to get to. Many do not have alternate transportation options.

MyRide has put into place the recommended safety precaution for both our riders and driver. Driver and rider safety is always our #1 priority. Read more about our safety precautions HERE.

For now, all volunteer trainings will be held virtually via live video. Click the link below to sign up! Training will be scheduled once we have enough people registered, based on perspective volunteers schedules. You have no obligation to continue to volunteer after training if you do not feel the program is a good fit, so come and learn about volunteering with MyRide!

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.
