What Drive A Senior offers...
Drive A Senior ATX provides free rides for seniors who sign up for our services and schedule their rides ahead of time. We concentrate on medical and health-related travel and try to customize our rides based upon the needs of our seniors. We also have vans in most regions that make grocery store, bank, pharmacy and other group trips helping make lives for our homebound neighbors a little easier. Our seniors benefit from the personalized approach of our volunteers and often live happier and healthier lives because of the relationships they are able to build.
