The cheapest and easiest way to expand transportation options for Eastern Maine residents is to fill the empty seats in our cars. This web page highlights four strategies for sharing rides. Make sure you take a look at our Neighborhood Ride Boards, a key feature of this Getting There web site.
Another way to share rides is to become a volunteer driver for a senior and disabled transportation program in your area.
