DuRide is a non-profit partner of The Jule, providing transportation for seniors who are unable or do not want to drive. DuRide volunteers provide car service 365 days a year to help seniors to maintain their independence and stay connected with family, friends and the community.
All DuRide volunteers complete a background check, hold a valid driver’s license, and proof of insurance.
DuRide offers door-through-door service.
If you need help with steps, heavy doors, walkers or carrying packages, DuRide volunteers will assist you from the car to your home and back.
DuRide is available to residents who are 65 or older in Dubuque, Asbury, and East Dubuque. Visit www.DuRideDBQ.com or call 563-451-4999 to learn more.
Become a DuRide Volunteer Driver - DuRide will fit any schedule.
If you become a DuRide volunteer, you will be giving your time to drive seniors to their local destinations.
You can volunteer on your own terms. Drive when you can. Make it work within your schedule. Volunteering is simple.
You’ll need a current Iowa driver’s license and proof of adequate insurance.
We’ll complete a routine background check to look at driving and criminal records. This offers peace of mind to riders.
You can use your own vehicle. You will be reimbursed for your mileage if you want; you can bank the miles you drive for your future transportation needs, or you can donate your miles to someone else.
You’ll receive a periodic statement that shows the hours you volunteered and the miles you drove, for your own tax purposes.
