My Ride, Volunteer Driver Program, Offered by Access San Joaquin

The My Ride program is a self-directed, practical, and empowering mileage reimbursement service that enables ADA-certified passengers to compensate their friends and neighbors for providing them with transportation assistance to ONLY San Joaquin, Stanislaus, and contiguous counties to San Joaquin County.

How does My Ride work?

  1. Current active ADA-certified passengers are automatically eligible for My Ride and will be enrolled once the passenger and volunteer driver waivers have been completed, returned to Access San Joaquin, processed, and you have received your welcome packet.
  2. ADA-certified passengers can recruit drivers from family, friends, and neighbors they know and trust.
  3. Both parties agree on a transportation schedule.
  4. ADA-certified passengers track and record mileage for each trip and turn in a mileage report (called Request for Mileage Reimbursement) to Access San Joaquin by no later than the 5th of each month.
  5. Passengers are obligated to pass the reimbursement amount in full along to their drivers.

Why My Ride?

  • You may use the drivers you know and trust.
  • There are no advanced reservations required.
  • It’s a win-win situation: the trip is free for the passenger and earns money for the driver.
