How does RideConnect work?
Older adults, individuals with disabilities and home health care workers in numerous towns in Northern Westchester can call RideConnect at (914) 242-7433 to talk with a transportation counselor about their transportation needs. RideConnect’s extensive database of providers will include taxis/limousines, municipal/town services, home health workers and volunteer/church transportation services. Staff members serve as personal assistants and direct callers to the fastest, most cost-effective transportation option that will meet their needs.
Unlike other transportation providers, RideConnect does not make users join a club or become a member to use its services. Callers who use RideConnect will only pay the fare charged by the transportation provider. However, if there is a free volunteer transportation provider willing to take a caller to his destination, there is no additional fee applied by RideConnect.

Transportation providers will be based primarily in seven towns in Northern
Westchester: Bedford, Lewisboro, Mount Kisco, Pound Ridge, North Salem, North Castle and Somers, but anyone living in Westchester can contact RideConnect.
Can transportation be arranged to destinations outside the towns served?

Transportation counselors can work with callers to find the right provider to meet their individual needs. Residents in surrounding towns can also call the Ride Connect number to see if a provider can take them to their destination.
