Beyond the gratitude of those directly served, Neighbor Ride has been consistently acknowledged as a model supplemental transportation program and senior service provider.
These awards recognized Neighbor Ride and its volunteers as the "best of the best" in terms of the enormous difference they are making in the lives of seniors in our community. Perhaps even more exciting, Neighbor Ride is proud to be a respected source of guidance and support for the launching of new volunteer-based transportation programs established to meet the needs of seniors in other communities in Maryland, California, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, New York, Texas and Virginia.
