Transportation for Older Adults and People with Disabilities
Retired Senior and Volunteer Program (RSVP)
RSVP provides scheduled individualized rides to medical appointments and at times other destinations. The service is door-through-door and drivers will assist passengers in getting to the correct location within the clinic or hospital. Rides are provided in the volunteers' own cars and are usually not accessible. Actual ride scheduling is arranged between the ride scheduler, the driver and the rider. Service area is all of Dane County. Rides are dependent on driver availability.
