Ride Solutions 

Ride Solutions is a website that provides alternative transportation options – ridesharing (carpooling and vanpooling), biking, public transit, walking, and guaranteed ride home services, to residents living within the greater New River, Roanoke Valleys, and regions of southwestern Virginia. Through our free services we partner with citizens and businesses to connect them with commuting options.

Responsible Rides

Participants purchase a reliable vehicle with a low-interest loan and gain financial management skills to help them reach their goals.
Responsible Rides® helps working families avoid the high interest rates offered by predatory lenders, high down payments, hidden purchase costs, and the limitations caused by a poor credit history. Responsible Rides® includes financial education and vehicle maintenance training. So participants are not only able to purchase a car, they’re able to keep it.
