Hanover Senior Rides Program

Volunteer drivers in their personal vehicles provide transportation for senior adults who live in Mechanicsville, VA who can no longer drive themselves for personal business like doctor's appointments, the bank, and the grocery store.

Senior Adults (60+) must be ambulatory, but may use a cane or walker for stability. Register with the Senior Rides Program, then call 7-13 days before your appointment to schedule your ride. Don't forget to provide your name, date, time & address for the appointment, and your contact phone number. 
     Drivers: MCEF provides liability insurance coverage and pays its drivers .25/mile driven. All drivers receive Driver Safety Training and have complete Background Checks including DMV Records checks. 

Your donations keep this a free transportation service. Please send your check written to MCEF with "senior rides" in the note field to the address below. Thank you!
