Bradford County Connect A Ride Volunteer Drivers

April 22, 2020

ARCC has been working with other community agencies toward creating a volunteer driver program to help meet the transportation needs of the vulnerable and at-risk people and families in our area.

Funding was awarded to ARCC through a competitive application from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency Victims of Crime Act to establish a volunteer driver program in our county.

The focus of the funding is to provide needed transportation assistance to victims and survivors of crime.  The community agency team members are trying to address the myriad of needs in the most efficient and collaborative way possible.

Applications to become a volunteer driver are now available.  Compensation for mileage may vary based on available funding. It is expected that volunteer drivers accepted into the program will use their personal vehicles to provide transportation.  A short training is required for all successful applicants. 

If you have questions or are interested, please email
