Get one at Drive a Senior RR, Pflugerville, Hutto, Austin EAST – DETAILS

LAST YEAR MORE THAN 2,500 of your central Texas friends and neighbors reached out to us for a lift: People like your Mom, making a weekly grocery trip, or your great Uncle Ralph, for his physical therapy; or Aunt Edith, wanting to join her friends for Canasta. People like your neighbor, who at 80+ years still rides his Segway, but can’t take that to the pharmacy. People like the lady up the block that wants to visit her husband in the nursing home. Folks with places to go and people to see. What they have in common is they decided to give up driving.

That’s why we formed the Drive a Senior Network. We connect Austin area volunteer drivers with seniors who live nearby and who choose to continue living independently. Last year we provided more than 36,000 rides. We expect to provide roughly 40,000 in the coming year . . . and even more in years to come. So whether you’re feeling charitable or “paying it forward” … or just have a gap on Thursdays between carpool and soccer practice, we’d appreciate your help.

I really enjoy the drivers –it’s as if I have known each of them all my life. I look forward to my ride with each of them.

I am so appreciative of the rides …. I’ve always been an independent woman and Drive A Senior is helping me maintain my independence.
