To meet short-notice ride requests, Family Service Rochester is piloting a new transport service for seniors. Rapid Rides is designed to meet seniors' last minute transportation needs. Through Rapid Rides, volunteer drivers assist older adults with medical and non-medical transportation needs. With this transportation service consumers may request same day rides. Pilot runs through 5/31/22.
