Scheduling a Ride
In order to ensure that adequate time is given for volunteer dispatchers and/or staff to schedule a ride, those needing to get to an appointment should call 24 to 48 hours ahead. Priority is given to those needing to get to medical or social service appointments.
Individual recipients are requested to make a donation of $5.00 for the round trip; however, no one is turned away for lack of funds.
For more information email us.
Other destinations can include:
- Senior Centers
- Hair Salons
- Libraries or book stores
- Shopping centers
Depending upon the request and the availability of volunteers, persons with medical appointments in another city may be able to access the Ride with Pride Program. Due to limitations, however, most requests to get to a medical appointment outside the County normally are not honored, with a notable exception for Dixon residents, who can request to be transported to medical appointments to Davis, Woodland, or Vacaville. The partnership with the City of Rio Vista allows for Faith in Action to take Rio Vistans to appointments in Antioch, Fairfield, and Vacaville.
More Details about Ride with Pride Program
Vacaville Ride with Pride Inc., an independent agency, merged with Faith in Action in 2003. The transportation service that it had provided became Faith in Action’s Ride with Pride program.
The program provides transportation to various destinations, primarily to and from medical or social service programs. Unlike the Caregiver Respite Program, which provides 1:1 transportation, this program transports several persons per vehicle, on a predetermined route. The vehicles may be agency-owned or volunteer-owned. Volunteer dispatchers or agency staff schedule these rides. Care recipients must be a senior who no longer drives and must be ambulatory. The agency does not transport seniors to work sites.
