A Greenville leader of a Human Service Agency says, “The greatest challenges our clients have involve major transport obstacles - getting to work & critical activities.“ 

Carolina RIDES+ seeks to improve affordable mobility for all clients by delivering shared rides from home to critical destinations: jobs, education, training, healthcare, shopping, recreation, entertainment, etc.

Carolina RIDES+ is a non-profit improving Mobility for ALL working to provide VITAL RIDES in underserved communities like Nicholtown. Carolina RIDES+ acts to reduce trip costs for low-income households, reduce pollution, and boost economic development. 

WHAT: RIDES to VITAL needs! Trips are door-to-door, shared, demand-response!  Most trips are VITAL RIDES - to work, shop, dine, healthcare, learn, childcare, exercise, worship, fellowship, therapy, prescriptions, and other critical needs.  

WHO: ALL RIDERS who need improved access to a better quality of life: seniors, youth, veterans, poor, and people with special needs & disabilities, as well as choice riders.

HOW: Transport providers with ADA-certified vans and driver teams deliver rides! For example, South East Transport (SET) deliver RIDES+ services to ALL - people needing trips to VITAL needs, as well as to non-emergency medical treatment for ones with disabilities!

WHERE: Rides from homes to targeted destinations offering vital services, including grocery stores, banks, laundromats, community centers, senior centers, medical services, work, etc. 

Most people feel their rides are “vital” - impacting income, health, and quality of life for both “challenged” riders with transport barriers and “choice” riders wanting convenient mobility. 

With your help and donations, we can change lives.
