How Ride Connect Texas impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision

The mission of Ride Connect Texas is to promote independence, preserve dignity, and enhance the quality of life of older adults and people with disabilities by coordinating and providing transportation services. The organization prioritizes medical and health-related travel needs, providing seniors and people with disabilities throughout Bexar County with free curb-to-curb, door-to-door, or door-through-door ride assistance. By helping people make it to their doctor’s office or senior center safely, Ride Connect Texas is increasing access to transportation as a means to access opportunity.
