CareShuttle, a collaborative, non-emergent community transportation program, is looking for volunteer drivers to take patients to and from medical appointments when transportation by the Eastern Sierra Transit Authority, family support or a friend is not available.
CareShuttle is a door-to-door, curb-to-curb service within a 60-mile radius of the City of Bishop, reaching from Mammoth Lakes to Lone Pine.
Volunteer drivers do not need to have medical background. They must have a valid driver’s license, clean driving record and proof of auto insurance. Volunteers must be willing and able to drive between Mammoth Lakes and Lone Pine and wait patiently until all medical appointments are complete.
Volunteering to drive CareShuttle ensures that those without a ready mode of transportation can make their appointments and never go without needed treatment.
Those interested in volunteering are asked to call Greg Bissonette at (760) 873-2166.
