Give A Ride

Many people in our community have no transportation of their own, cannot use the bus and yet need to access healthcare and other critical services. Interested in becoming a volunteer driver? Contact your senior center, faith group, health or community center to find out how you can help neighbors get where they need to go. Stagecoach coordinates many of the volunteer drivers here in the Upper Valley. Download Stagecoach’s Volunteer Application Packet and call 802-728-3773 or e-mail info@stagecoach-rides.org to get started as a Volunteer Driver. Volunteers are reimbursed for mileage and play a crucial role in the organization.
