Trap Ride is to provide low-cost transportation of a disabled person's Assistive Mobility Device in certain situations where the consumer and/or chair are stranded and/or separated from one another. Trap Ride is NOT a taxi service.
Our Trap Ride Fundraising Campaign is currently underway. Your donations are appreciated. Every cent of the monies raised go into the Trap Ride program to ensure that the service is low-cost and/or free of charge to the disabled communities we serve. Please click on the link and give generously to keep this program open. More...
