Rides for GOOD

We Call Upon Frederick to Do Good.

Heroes Needed - Volunteer!

Spend a little time, and make a huge difference in a neighbor’s life.

Our volunteers are essential to the success of Rides For Good and to the passengers we serve. As a volunteer driver, you will help your Frederick County neighbors to overcome the challenges of not having safe, reliable transportation to access vital and important community resources and services. Services include shopping for groceries, picking up a prescription, meeting with the doctor, seeing the dentist, attending faith activities, or even going for that job interview.
