The Human Services Council, in partnership with C-Tran, offers a program in Clark County aimed at reducing the number of people who lack access to safe and affordable transportation. Volunteers in Motion is designed to recruit and engage volunteer drivers to assist seniors, people with disabilities and other at-risk people to access basic services as a way to remain in their homes and live independently.
The Volunteer Transportation Driver is responsible for safely and courteously driving passengers to their trips. Our passengers have no other appropriate means of transportation. Drivers may use their own vehicle, or a vehicle owned by the Human Services Council.
