SELF-DRIVING

until that's a reality

….who transports Seniors who quite driving.? See ABOUT.

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. 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.

WHO WE ARE

The Drive a Senior Network is comprised of partner organizations who serve eligible seniors living in Travis, Bastrop and Williamson counties. We provide our free services through our current partner organizations in Elgin, West Austin, North Central Austin, South Austin and Southwest Travis County. In 2017, these partners will provide a record number of free rides in support of “healthy aging in place” for the seniors living in our central Texas communities.

Effective October 1, 2017, Drive a Senior – Senior Access is no longer a Drive a Senior partner and has changed its name to simply Senior Access. They continue to serve seniors in Round Rock, Pflugerville, Hutto and parts of northeast Austin.
