Volunteer Drivers

The ideal applicant for this position has extra time on their hands and desires to use that time in service to seniors and vision impaired adults in Detroit area communities. This is a volunteer position, which includes a mileage reimbursement of $0.75 per occupied mile for those drivers who request it. Schedules are very flexible, allowing drivers to provide as many or as few rides as desired, based on available ride requests. Currently most ride requests are during week days, but are expected to include weekends as the COVID pandemic subsides. Most drivers will provide these rides using their own vehicles. Independence Rides provides additional insurance to cover the vehicle and all occupants. Age 25 and above.

How you help Volunteers provide rides to those who can no longer drive helping them to have a more fulfilling life.
About us Independence Rides is all about dignified transportation for seniors and vision impaired adults in the greater Detroit area. The rides are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can be scheduled for any reason. A key feature is ‘door-through-door’ and ‘arm-through-arm’ assistance. This means we provide personal walking assistance as needed from the departure door to the car, and from the car through the destination door.
