Our Mission

Mobility Matters provides mobility management services throughout Contra Costa County by matching riders to transportation providers that meet their individual needs. Mobility Matters operates volunteer driver programs that provide free, one-on-one, door-through-door rides for seniors and disabled veterans who cannot access other forms of transportation.

Volunteer

Volunteers are the heart of our organization. As the senior population ages, we cannot keep pace with the growing demand for services without your help.
You are the lifeline for the senior and veteran communities.

Request Rides

Mobility Matters offers ambulatory, otherwise homebound senior residents of Contra Costa County free, one-on-one, door-through-door rides provided by volunteer drivers. These rides are primarily for the purpose of obtaining medical care, groceries, and other basic necessities.

Donate

Mobility Matters relies on support from individuals, organizations, and corporations to help us continue to provide our programs and services to the vulnerable population we serve. You can even donate an old car!
