We have adjusted to having passengers sit in the back seat and for non vaccinated passengers or drivers to wear masks. This is to protect both our drivers and riders while still remaining available to those most vulnerable.
Although we are still providing rides to patients, we recommend you utilize family, friends and neighbors with whom you already have regular contact as much as possible.
Covid has unfortunately caused a decrease in available drivers. We have only 30% of our drivers available to give rides until our volunteer base grows again. Regardless of that we are here for you to request rides and we will do our best to find drivers for every request. Please be patient as our volunteers begin to return.

What Ready Rides does during normal operation:
Ready Rides provides transportation at no charge for the elderly & disabled residents living in: Barrington, Durham, Lee, Madury, Newfields, Newmarket, Northwood, Nottingham, Strafford NH, USA. Rides are provided by volunteer drivers using their own vehicles. Accessible rides available.
For older people that don’t have a car, have poor mobility, find it difficult to use public transport or that live in rural areas with poor transport links, it can be difficult to get out and about. This can lead to feelings of isolation, loneliness and a lack of independence. Ready Rides provides community transport to support older people to live more independent lives. Ready Rides provides one on one individual rides for passengers to their specific appointments. Many times the same driver will wait during the appointment and also be the return driver. On occasion a passenger will have a different driver to their appointment than the driver who picks them up and takes them home. Our drivers are all very caring volunteers who use their own vehicles to provide rides and find it both a pleasure to drive the regular riders and nice to meet the new or just occasional rider.
