Vehicle-sharing program links transportation to people with disabilities.

Catching a Ride

Human Services

Getting to the grocery store, doctor’s office or shopping mall can be challenging without transportation—especially if you also have a disability.

There are more than 420,000 people with disabilities in this region. Now, the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) is working to expand a vehicle-sharing program that will help nonprofit agencies and the individuals they serve.

Many organizations participate in this program by sharing their accessible vehicles when they are not using them. By combining resources, the service providers save money while making sure that people in the community who need transportation, get transportation.

For more information about the program or how you can participate in regional transportation activities, contact MAG at: 602-254-6300 or visit MAG’s Connect-A-Ride webpage.
