Every year Rural Transit hosts a luncheon event to recognize our volunteers who are willing to give back to their community! These loyal, caring, and trustworthy volunteers serve as drivers, dispatchers, and driver aides.
Because of our volunteer support Rural Transit has become a staple throughout our communities providing over 10,000 safe rides per year to the seniors, disabled and low-income residents of Erie County. These individuals have been able to maintain an independent lifestyle through the help of our more than one hundred and thirty plus volunteers! Eligible residents are transported to dialysis clinics, medical offices, physical therapy, pharmacies, colleges, work places, nutrition sites, adult day cares, grocery stores, banks, salons/barbers, etc.
We could not provide this service without our volunteers!!!
