Carepool Volunteer Driver Program : Free Rides to Medical Appointments or the Grocery Store

Whistlestop’s CarePool program, sponsored in part by Marin Transit, helps older adults get to medical appointments or the grocery store. CarePool offers FREE rides to Marin County residents who are 65 or older, or a person with disabilities who is able to travel in a passenger vehicle.  To enroll in the program or request a ride please call the Travel Navigators at 415-454-Ruth and Beth IMG_0626 Small0902.  Our volunteer drivers can offer extra support, such as walking you from your home to the car, as this program provides a unique “door-through-door” service.

CarePool’s success depends on volunteers in the community.  Volunteer drivers will accept rides through email, and only commit to rides that are convenient for their schedules.  Funds are available to reimburse drivers for mileage.  If you have a clean driving record and vehicle insurance  and are interested in driving for this much needed program, please call Laurie at 415-456-9062 x 117 or email volunteer@whistlestop.org. to learn about upcoming training sessions.   Providing a few trips a month can make all the difference to a person in need.
