When a person does not drive a car he or she has few affordable transportation options in the Austin Texas area. Family members may not always be available. Public transportation is inadequate. The public transit service for people with disabilities suffers from lack of funding and as a result proves unreliable. Taxi services may cost too much for people on fixed incomes. Many seniors need personalized affordable door-through-door transportation. Faith In Action Caregivers offers this service at no charge to the rider.
Faith In Action Caregivers volunteers drive seniors to medical appointments grocery shopping and on other errands. With a little help from the Faith In Action Caregivers volunteer transportation program over 2575 seniors in the metro Austin area are able to continue living independently. In 2010 FIAC volunteers provided 36536 point-to-point rides for seniors.
