Brief Description of the Program
EZ Ryde4Life is a transportation program that offers on demand transportation for adults 18 years or older in partnership with transportation network companies (TNCs) like Lyft and Uber. It gives those who do not drive, or those who cannot or don’t want to use a smartphone, an opportunity to take advantage of current technology. EZ Ryde4Life will take clients anywhere in the states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York, with some exceptions, as long as the rides originate in New Jersey.
The goals of the EZ Ryde4Life program are:
- to help overcome the transportation barriers for older adults and others who are unable or unwilling to use smartphone technology allowing them to access doctors, jobs, friends and family.
- to offer adults over 18 safe, economical, real-time curb-to-curb transportation for any purpose within NJ, PA or NY (with some exceptions).
- to advocate for our clients in situations that they might not be able to.
In the last three months, the EZ Ryde4Life program averages over 2,400 rides per month. Our Transportation Coordinators advocate for our riders if there are any issues with a ride, an item is lost, or if there is an issue with the final price.
