Become A Volunteer Driver

GIVE A LIFT. GET A LIFT. When you become a volunteer driver through your regional public transportation provider, you provide cost-effective transportation to fellow community members in need of transportation. Volunteer drivers provide a vital connection for older adults, individuals with disabilities, and Medicaid recipients who need a lift to medical appointments and social service providers. If you have access to a reliable vehicle, enjoy driving and meeting people, contact us on how to become a volunteer driver! You set the schedule and make a big difference in your local community. 

How It Works:

As a volunteer driver, you decide how often you can offer transportation. Most trips are centered on medical needs, providing access to appointments like dialysis, radiation treatment, physical therapy, and other wellness appointments. You may also provide rides to senior centers, affordable food locations, counseling, prevention treatment, or various human services programs.

While most appointments are local, others can be as far as Dartmouth or Boston. You can determine the range of transportation service you are able to provide.

What's In It For You?

  • A Generous Mileage Reimbursement Rate (non-taxable)
  • Set your own schedule 
  • Personal satisfaction of helping your local community
  • Help play a critical role in providing transportation services to fellow Vermonters


  • Ability to pass extensive background screens
  • Required proof of insurance, registration and valid drivers license
