Description
Supporting Your Community
Senior Access provides free transportation for people aged 60+ living in East Austin, Round Rock, Manor, Pflugerville, and Hutto. Our clients are seniors who live independently but either do not have access to a car or no longer drive. This means they need their community's help to get to appointments, the store, social outings, etc. This is where YOU come in. Our volunteer drivers made 5,373 trips in 2018, serving 1,600 clients.

At Your Convenience
When you volunteer with Senior Access, you can get trained online at your convenience (or in-person if you prefer). Then you will be able to select rides online or by phone that fit your schedule and where you want to drive.
Requirements
Background check, Training
Requirement DetailsDriving with Senior Access is simple. The requirements are that you must:
  • Be 18+ and out of high school
  • Provide a valid Texas drivers license and proof of insurance
  • Fill out an application (online or in-person)
  • Pass a criminal background check and a driver record check
  • Receive training (less than half an hour online or ~1 hour in-person at your convenience)
Once you register, you will receive an email from one of our staff with our application. After you have submitted the application, we will run a background check and driver record check. Assuming you pass those, we will send you the link to the online training or set a time to meet for the short training. Then you'll be good to go!
Perks• Flexibility. You can set your own schedule according to what works for you, driving as often as you like at times and places that are convenient for you.
• The opportunity to give back to your community, and be part of building a caring community for those who have given us so much.
• Fun! Our clients are often sweet, funny, or sassy, and they're always grateful.
• We also have incentives to thank volunteers who drive the most every quarter, and for those who refer friends who get trained and take at least 3 rides.
