Helping You Keep - or Regain - Your Independence Our program offers safe, reliable, personalized transportation to adults over 60, or disabled adults, who cannot drive. Rides are provided by our volunteer drivers who truly care about each and every individual they transport. Our mission is to help you remain independent!
Door-to-door rides are provided for essential needs such as medical or dental appointments, shopping, personal care, banking and more.
Riders must be 60+ or disabled adults who cannot drive due to their age or disability.
Our service covers residents in La Mesa and neighboring east county communities. If you live elsewhere, please call 619-667-1321 for a referral.
Before requesting a ride, an application must be completed. Rides must be requested 5 business days prior to the appointment.
