What We Do

We know that keeping your medical appointments is essential to your good health and safety, so WestFair Rides will

 

  • Help arrange for rides to medical appointments for older adults aged 60+ who do not drive and for adults with vision disabilities
  • Recruit volunteer drivers to help their older neighbors to remain mobile and connected to their healthcare providers
  • Provide information about other community ride resources, to the best of our ability

 

Who are we?

A collaborative organization managing ride choices for older adults and for adults with vision impairment who live in Westchester County, NY.  If we cannot provide a volunteer to drive, we will help you find another ride resource.  WestFair Rides is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization, incorporated in New York State.

 

What do we do?

WestFair Rides is creating a network of sustainable, community-based transportation services. Our goal is to promote lifelong safety, independence and mobility through mutually supportive, collaborative relationships with aging in place organizations, town recreation, public transportation, private livery, ParaTransit and other transportation providers and services in our region.  

 

In January 2013 the program began providing volunteer rides to older adults in the Sound Shore area of Westchester County.  In October 2013 WestFair Rides began service in Northeast Westchester.  In 2014, the service area expanded across the southern part of the County.  By the end of 2016, we were providing service to the entire County.  Our plan is to serve older adults and adults with vision impairments who live in any Westchester County community and in the adjoining towns of Fairfield County.  

 

 

We want to hear from you about your transportation needs.
