RIDE WITH PRIDE PROGRAM


What is it?

Project Ride with Pride is a transportation voucher program that aims to better integrate seniors and people with disabilities into their communities in Waldo County. Ride with Pride uses grant money from the Federal Transit Administration and funding from local community partners to help subsidize the cost of transportation for eligible participants, giving them more freedom of mobility.


How does the coupon/voucher program work?

Once approved, participants can purchase transportation vouchers at half the cost of their face value. Participants arrange their own transportation with an approved provider and the vouchers can be used to pay for the ride. In other words, participants only pay half the cost of the ride. Vouchers can be used for rides to visit friends, go to work, go shopping, go to medical appointments, or for any other purpose.


Who is eligible?

Eligibility for Project Ride with Pride is based on need for transportation, disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and/or status as a senior citizen as defined by the Federal Transit Administration:

  • “Disability means with respect to an individual, a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities of such an individual; a record of such impairment; or being regarded as having such an impairment.”
  • “Senior Citizen means any person 65 years of age and older.”

We encourage those interested to submit an application.
