Volunteer Drivers Needed!

Please help us spread the word: We are in great need of more volunteer drivers!  Here is our latest call for volunteers:

Drive the Distance for Local Seniors!

Getting to the doctor’s office can seem daunting for many local seniors.  Poor vision or medical conditions prevent them from driving; limited mobility makes it impossible to take the bus; taxis come with prohibitive costs; and loved ones have full-time jobs that render them unavailable to help.  Yet, since 1975, Senior Services’ Volunteer Transportation has served as a trustworthy resource for older adults throughout King County.  With its force of kind and reliable volunteers, the program provides the missing link between seniors and their necessary medical care.

But the value of Volunteer Transportation extends far beyond the rides themselves.  A volunteer driver serves as a friendly escort-- a companion-- someone to talk to along the way.  Volunteers turn previously stressful ordeals into pleasant, meaningful experiences.

More volunteer drivers are needed throughout King County.  The program currently does not have enough volunteer drivers to keep up with the growing community need for transportation.

You can help more seniors get “on the road” to improved health and peace of mind!  If you have a reliable vehicle, a clean driving record and some weekday availability, this is the role for you. Call (206) 748-7588, email Hilary at or visit to find out more.  Discover why rides change lives!
