As a mission-driven non-profit organization, EZ Ride is dedicated to lowering the transportation barrier and improving the quality of life for for commuters, lower-income residents, older adults, and riders with disabilities in New Jersey.
From carpools to vanpools, to shuttles, to transportation for older and riders with disabilities, EZ Ride tries to fill the gap when other options fall short. For some people, the transportation services may not be attainable because of cost. EZ Ride strives to ensure these services are available to everyone in the community regardless of income.
Our goals for this year’s annual campaign are to:
- Raise awareness and $200,000 in funds for EZ Ride’s financial assistance program
- Enable the participation of 1,000 older adults in our Ryde4life transportation program
- Help to provide more than 15,000 subsidized rides for lower-income older adults
We have partnered with Lyft and Uber to launch Ryde4Life, a program to provide reliable transportation on demand. The program is very popular with older adults because no reservation is required and riding in a sedan is far more comfortable than a minibus. However, the cost of the ride continues to pose a financial burden for most of our riders who live on a fixed income and cannot always afford the trip.
Please join us today in helping advance our cause for affordable transportation. For a better you. For a better community. Give for a better us.
