Our Fee Schedule is based on mileage and not time.
So you’ll know the price of your round trip before you’re picked up.

|5 – 9.99 miles||$18.00|
|10 – 14.99 miles||$24.00|
|15 – 19.99 miles||$30.00|
|20 – 35 miles||$36.00|
How It Works
First time riders will be required to deposit $45 into their account, $20 of which is a non-refundable registration fee and $25 of which is deposited into the rider’s transportation account. Riders can add more funds online or by check or money order made payable to Neighbor Ride and mailed to 5570 Sterrett Pl., #102, Columbia, MD, 21044 with the rider’s name noted on the check.
Passengers on a limited income may qualify for subsidized rides via the Good Neighbor Fund (GNF). A GNF application is included in the registration packet. Proof of income is required.
Through generous funding provided by The Tower Cares Foundation, subsidies are also available for Veterans who ride with us. There is a place to indicate Veteran status on the registration form.
Why do you charge?
Paid rides help keep our organization up and running. We are a 501(c)3 registered nonprofit, and we do everything we can to keep our costs down and ensure our rides are affordable. More than 40% of rides are covered by our Good Neighbor Fund and we rely on our volunteer ride coordinators to answer our phones. Our paid rides contribute to our overhead and allow us to support our one full-time and three part-time staff members, cover maintenance fees for our technology and fund our training and call center in Columbia.
