AgeWell Rides is a volunteer-based transportation system for people ages 60 or over who do not drive and provides a way for seniors to get to medical appointments, go grocery shopping, perform volunteer work, or attend social events in the community while at the same time making a friendly new acquaintance. The program helps seniors stay active and independent as well as remain connected to the larger community. The service is for the East End of Pittsburgh primarily, including Oakland, Squirrel Hill and Shadyside, as well as Mount Lebanon. AgeWell Rides is an ongoing service with rides provided 7 days a week by volunteers as available. There is no cost associated with this program as funders such as private foundations, donors, and the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania help support our initiatives. For more information, please contact Ellen Leger at 412-422-0400 or [email protected].
Thank you to Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield for your funding support of our program.
