Who We Are

Senior Ride Charleston is a community based, local non-profit organization that provides door-through-door rides for seniors 60 years and older, and adults 21 years old and above with a visually impairment, within its service areas located in Charleston County, South Carolina.

Now in its 10th year, Senior Ride Charleston has provided over 60,000 rides for its member riders.

Volunteers Are Vital
Paul Franklin and Dr. Worthington 10-24-12Volunteers provide nearly 50% of our rides and are the key factor in keeping rides available, affordable, keeping program costs down, and keeping our program intrinsically connected to the community.

All drivers, paid and volunteer, undergo a thorough background and driving record check and complete a driver training program prior to providing their first ride. Member riders schedule their rides in advance with no restriction for the ride purpose. Rides are provided 24 hrs. a day, 365 days a year. The cost of the ride is automatically charged to the member’s ride account and a statement is mailed to members displaying the total cost for rides that were taken in the previous month.

Compassionate, Personal Service
Scholarships are available to assist individuals who need help with the cost of their annual membership and to help fund their Ride Account.

Each ride that we give is a vital link to independence and quality of life for our member riders. Families do not need to miss work or drive long distances. No money changes hand, no tips are allowed, and wonderful friendships are formed! No one but family or a very dear friend would provide the compassionate personal service we do.

Download a member application from our website or phone our office at 843-225-2715 to request an application be mailed to you. You may pay the annual membership fee, fund the Ride Account and pay for the cost of rides here.
