Rides Where You Want to Go

Transportation support is a critical service to help all of us remain in our homes here in this rural community where there is no public transportation and medical, grocery and other services are often quite a distance from home. Situations can arise for any of us when help may be needed to reach a doctor, visit a friend, go shopping, or attend an event. Rapp at Home helps with all of these situations. We have served our Friends with over 500 rides in just one year (2023).

Rapp at Home's vetted and screened volunteer drivers generally use their own vehicles, but we also have two wheelchair accessible vans used to support those with accessibility issues. About 40% of our rides make use of these vans.

Rapp at Home works in partnership with the Regional Transportation Collaborative (initiated by the Rappahannock Rapidan Regional Commission and including Encompass, Voltran, and others) which manages the scheduling of most of our rides. To schedule a ride, please call the office at 540-937-4663 and select option 1 for Transportation. The Regional Transportation Collaborative will schedule a ride. Advance notice of 48 to 73 hours allows us to serve you better.

Rapp at Home volunteers can also pick up and deliver groceries and prescriptions. Call the office at 540-937-4663 to arrange for these services.
