Ride Connection provides transportation options, resources, and services to older adults, people with disabilities, low-income job seekers, and Veterans residents. Whether it is a trip to the grocery store, a medical appointment or a local community center, Ride Connection serves as a link between you and your community. Services are offered at no charge or at a low-cost.
Ride Connection provides services in the urban and rural communities within the Neighbors-West Northwest boundaries. One example includes the Downtown Ride About, a program designed to provide grocery shopping shuttles at no cost to people over 60 and people with disabilities. You can board and de-board the bus at any stop. Stops include Marshall Union Manner, Gallagher Plaza, Medallion Apartments, Northwest Towers, Rose Schnitzer Tower, 1200 Building, Elm Court Loaves & Fishes, Rosenbaum Plaza, The Morrison, Trader Joe’s and Fred Meyer. There is a Monday and a Saturday loop, but not all stops are included both days.
Another example is the Door To Door service where Ride Connection and their partner agencies provide rides for a wide variety of needs including medical, nutritive, shopping, supportive services, recreational, and volunteer/work-related needs. Service is available Monday through Friday; hours, capacity and days of service vary. You can request a ride thorough their website or over the phone. Pre-registration is required.
