What We Offer


GO Ride's transportation services help seniors get to the hospital, to the store, to a doctor’s appointment, or a social gathering anywhere in Montgomery County. Each person who would like to receive rides from GO Rides must first complete the transportation application. Once completed we will notify you when you may begin requesting rides.

Special Deliveries

This service can be used for pick-up needs such as (but not limited to) groceries, prescriptions, library books, and more. Once a volunteer is confirmed for your pick-up, you will need to share the pick-up details with our volunteer including location, time, and a confirmation number if applicable. Our drivers will arrange to leave your package at your front door to reduce physical contact.

Ronald Richardson
Greater Olney Rides has been assisting me with transportation for over two years. Their volunteers are helpful, punctual, caring, and kind. I have been accompanied to appointments, both medical and personal, by many nice people on their staff. As long as a volunteer is available, which is 98% of the time, you can be assured of getting to your destination promptly; and as an added bonus they wait with you!
Joan Mahlmann
After I retired, I was looking for a meaningful way to give back to the community where I live. Based on my own experience with aging parents, I was well aware of how critical transportation needs can be for the elderly. Volunteering for GO Rides has been a very rewarding experience for me. I have met many wonderful seniors who are very appreciate of this service.
