“Neighbor Ride’s volunteers are courteous, thoughtful and caring individuals. This is a remarkable service that takes the stress out of finding a ride and turns it into a positive feeling of community.”
Since 2004, we’ve connected Howard County seniors to the people and things that matter most to them. The Neighbor Ride network of compassionate community volunteer drivers and ride coordinators ensure our riders can get safely and reliably from point A to B and back.

A Note for Adult Children of Riders
We encourage adult children of our riders to be involved in the relationship between Neighbor Ride and their parent. Our Ride Match Portal makes it easy for you to assist with scheduling, payment and more, even if you live out of state. Our dedication to personal attention means that we are your eyes and ears on the ride. You can have peace of mind knowing your parent’s safety during the ride is our top priority.
