Help Us Provide Subsidized Rides for Lower-Income Older Adults!

We are reaching out to you with an urgent appeal to make a difference in the lives of lower-income older adults in our community facing transportation challenges.

Transportation is a fundamental aspect of independence, and unfortunately, many older adults in our community find it increasingly difficult to access reliable and affordable transportation services. This issue limits their ability to meet basic needs and hinders their social interactions and access to essential services such as healthcare and community resources.

To address this critical concern, we have partnered with Lyft and Uber to launch a subsidized rides program for lower-income older adults. Through this initiative, we aim to alleviate the financial burden on those who need it the most, ensuring they can maintain their independence and lead fulfilling lives.

Here’s where you come in: EZ Ride Board of Trustees has generously committed to matching donations of up to $100,000 to kickstart this program. Your support can significantly impact this initiative’s success and the well-being of countless older adults in our community.
