Naperville Seniors in Action d/b/a Ride Assist Naperville (RAN) is an Illinois 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, with the mission of providing affordable and dependable transportation to medical appointments for Naperville seniors and their caregivers.
A carefully screened and trained RAN volunteer driver will pick up the senior (minimum age 60) at home, drive them to their medical appointment, wait with them, and drive them back home again. All of our insured drivers are volunteers who use their own vehicles to provide rides. Rides are available by appointment only, Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, and must be made a minimum of 7 business days before each appointment.
We suggest a $15 donation for each round-trip ride, with no extra cost for a caregiver. No money is given to the driver and no tipping is allowed – an invoice will be sent the following month. If a senior is financially challenged, we ask them to pay what they can afford. We cover the greater Naperville area and include major hospitals.
A special Thank You to our founders: Karen Courney, Jane French, Bev Frier, and Sue Shanahan. We are eternally grateful for your hard work and dedication that lead to Ride Assist Naperville!
