Ride Service for Seniors Still Needs Volunteer Drivers

RCC logoNV Rides Reston, a free transportation service for residents 55 and older, is still looking for volunteer drivers.

NV Rides partnered with Reston Community Center to launch the service here last spring.

Volunteer drivers provide door-to-door rides for essential needs such as medical or dental appointments, shopping, personal care and banking for seniors who are no longer comfortable driving.

The service area covers residents in the Small Tax District 5 boundaries of Reston. Volunteers self-select ride requests and may choose not to drive farther distances.

To volunteer, visit NV Rides on RCC’s website and download an application. They will pay for a DMV and background check. You can choose your own rides and hours.
