A Gift to Seniors

VillageRides partners with villages and community organizations in Montgomery County and Prince George‘s County, MD that provide volunteer transportation for seniors and adults with disabilities who do not drive to take them to medical appointments, grocery shopping, and more.

If you need a ride for yourself or are a caregiver, family member or a neighbor of a senior citizen who needs transportation services and lives in one of our partnering community organizations, you can connect directly with them by clicking on the links below.
