Call a Ride for Sausalito Seniors Needs Volunteer Drivers

Post Date:07/27/2018 3:30 PM

Call a Ride for Sausalito Seniors (CARSS) was founded in 2015 as a result of the hard work of the City's Age Friendly Task Force. After surveying the community, the task force developed a plan prioritizing the needs of aging residents, and local transportation was at the top of the list.

In 2017, CARSS and its team of volunteer drivers provided more than 1,500 rides to residents of Sausalito and the floating homes who are age 60 and older.

Unfortunately, CARSS is running low on volunteer drivers. If you have been thinking about volunteering in Sausalito, this is a great time to get started. CARSS requests that volunteers drive a minimum of one four-hour shift per month, or one there-and-back ride to an evening program at the Sausalito Library or another local venue.

To start the application process to become a CARSS driver, please call (415) 944-5474 or download an application. CARSS is a City of Sausalito program managed by Sausalito Village, a nonprofit volunteer organization that provides a support network for seniors who want to age in place.
