Yes, all trips are driven by volunteer drivers and are dependent on volunteer availability. The sooner you request a trip the more likely it is that we may be able to schedule it. Please allow a minimum of at least two (2) full business days to book your trip if you need a volunteer driver. This is to allow the coordinator time to recruit a volunteer driver. If you’d like to apply to be a volunteer driver, please note it may take up to two weeks to be approved and complete the training, so keep that in mind when requesting trips and considering driving.
