CENTRAL TEXAS

TRANSPORTATION: THE KEY TO HEALTHY AGING IN PLACE

What would you do if you could no longer drive?

Most likely you would depend on family, friends, use costly taxi or ride services — or just stay home.

But, you have another option you may not know about. Drive a Senior Central Texas is a volunteer-based nonprofit serving seniors age 60 and older who no longer drive.

We provide transportation at no cost for:

  • Medical appointments
  • Grocery shopping
  • Community activities
  • Social Outings
See the map below to view the new Central Texas service area.
For more information, contact Mary Sue Clyne at boardchair-ctx@driveasenior.org

Central Texas

Serving a broad section of South and West Austin, our region covers part of Cesar Chavez then south of Ladybird Lake and west of the Colorado River. It includes West Lake Hills, Rollingwood, Lost Creek, Barton Creek, Bee Cave, Lakeway, The Hills. To the east  we go to Pleasant Valley Road, serving Barton Hills, Zilker, Bouldin, Travis Heights, South Congress, South Lamar, Westgate, Sunset Valley, Oak Hill, Garrison Park, South Park Meadows, Circle C and Western Oaks. We are expanding down Hwy. 290 into parts of Dripping Springs.

Our growing van program

Thanks to the generous support of St. David’s Foundation, we continue to expand our efforts to help seniors age in place and provide our clients a chance socialize and shop.

How you can help ….

VOLUNTEER SOME OF YOUR TIME: Even if driving’s not your cup of tea there are a world of ways to help your homebound senior neighbors. Are you good with a wrench? Join our brigade of part- time handymen. Like to visit? Make occasional home visits; they’re always welcome. Like spending time on the phone? Check in with a senior neighbor who’d love a chat? How about helping out in our office part time? Assisting in our next fund-raiser? Passing out flyers? If you have the time, we have the task.

PROVIDE FINANCIAL SUPPORT: Donations make it possible for Drive a Senior to serve our nearby senior citizens and to plan to continue that service  as the needs grow.
