Merici City Rides, Indianapolis, IN

Can You Drive? Volunteer to help someone get to work, pick-up groceries, or visit a friend in Lawrence and Carmel!

Over 5,000 adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities live in Indianapolis.

One of the greatest obstacles faced by adults with disabilities is not being able to drive. Not having transportation significantly limits one’s ability to integrate into the community, leaving a large percentage of individuals feeling isolated and lonely. Consider giving your time today.

Popular on-demand transportation services are too costly and city bus routes are difficult to navigate. Merici City Rides pairs a volunteer driver with an individual with disabilities in Lawrence, Indianapolis and Carmel.
