Community Concepts’ transportation program seeks volunteer drivers to help those with no other means of transportation get to medical appointments and other destinations.

Drivers are needed throughout the Midcoast, including Lincoln, Knox, Waldo and Sagadahoc counties. Drivers must have their own vehicles and liability insurance. They should have a clean driving record with no more than two moving violations on their driving record in the past three years.

Rides are available to people to medical appointments, kidney dialysis, cancer treatments and for other needs. The program operates from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, with a range of driving hours available throughout the day.

Drivers have flexible schedules and receive a reimbursement of $0.41 per mile for all miles driven. The reimbursement is not taxable and does not interfere with other government benefits. Drivers receive training in First Aid and defensive driving. Rides are coordinated with drivers in real time through cellular-connected tablets.

Community Concepts will host a volunteer driver information booth at the Rockland Farmer’s Market June 7, and at the Montsweag Flea Market Saturday, June 9, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Anyone interested can find out more about becoming a volunteer driver from Community Concepts representatives.
