Important Information Passengers Should Know:

Our volunteer drivers provide one to one transportation. It is our goal to assist older adults to remain independent by providing transportation to appointments. Our drivers donate their time and use their own vehicles. They remain with the rider and are available to assist as necessary.  We can be most helpful to you, if you are acquainted with the following information.

  • Please do all you can to keep your appointment. If a cancellation is necessary, please call our office as soon as possible. This allows time to notify our driver and schedule another rider.
  • Please be ready at your designated pick-up time.
  • Any change of time or destination requires the approval of the Shepherd’s Center office.Each rider must provide the name and telephone number of a person (with that person's consent) who will be an emergency contact. This information is given to the driver.
  • An assigned driver will call you the day before your appointment.
  • If your driver does not call you, please notify the Shepherd's Center office in the morning. Do not cancel your scheduled appointment until you have talked with our office.
  • If you have questions or do not understand the above information, please call the Shepherd's Center office at 383-1122. Our office is staffed 9am to 12noon, Monday through Thursday. A recorded message can be left at any other time.
