Assisted Rides Program

The AAA/ADRC Assisted Rides Program is temporarily suspended until further notice. Please check back for updates. 

The Assisted Rides Program is a volunteer-based program designed to fill the transportation gap currently facing Adults 21 and older who have disabilities, as well as Seniors 60 and older who have no other means of getting transportation to obtain needed services to maintain or enhance their quality of life.

The Assisted Rides Program is sponsored by the Lieutenant Governor’s Office on Aging.  The program is funded through a grant from the SC Department of Transportation Office of Public Transit.  It is coordinated by the Central Midlands Council of Governments’ Aging and Disability Resource Center, which serves the citizens of Fairfield, Lexington, Newberry and Richland Counties.

If you are a disabled or senior adult who needs transportation to a medical appointment, human service agency, grocery store, social activity and more, the Assisted Rides Program may be able to help.  Passengers will not be charged a fee, but donations will be accepted to help with the cost of the trip.

Volunteer drivers are an important and valued part of this program.  You help our passengers get where they need to be, and you are in charge of your time.  Drivers can choose the rides they want to give, which makes this one of the most flexible and rewarding opportunities available.
