Raise Your Helping Hand
We are a non-profit organization, we are looking forward to a world where helping those in our communities get to medical appointments will bring a better healthier future for all.
What we do
Ready Rides provides transportation at no charge for the elderly & disabled residents living in: Barrington, Durham, Lee, Madury, Newfields, Newmarket, Northwood, Nottingham, Strafford and soon in Epping 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.

What People Say
Driving for Ready Rides has been one of the best decisions I haveD. Phillips
made since retiring last year. I have met some wonderful & interesting people, not to mention heard some interesting stories about the different towns that we serve! Throughout my nursing
career one of the constant themes has been that to stay healthy and
independent requires people to have access to healthcare. Ready
Rides provides an important part in this access. I would encourage
anyone who is able, to volunteer for Ready Rides. You will have fun
and provide a vital service to individuals and your community.
“At my age, my riders are fellow travelers on this journey. It’s always enlighteningR. Erickson
to share short clips from their long and interesting stories, and the common
challenges we face every day. More than anything else, I am grateful that I am still
able to lighten someone else’s load and contribute in these small ways.”
