    Thumbs up driving assistance

    Anyone know of any government agency or other organization that will provide a person to drive a quad short distances. The quad has a van and gas and can help pay the driver.


    Thanks;

    None that I know of. If you cannot drive yourself, you can hire anyone to drive you. Just be sure you verify their driver's license, do a background check for things like DUI history and criminal prosecutions, and make sure that they are added to your car insurance before you let them drive your van...with you in it or not.

    Angry car help

    How much to charge? $10/hour? AL DHR gave him a free driver as long as he was in school.

    If you can find someone for $10/hour, then go for it. In my state, private pay attendant care runs more like $14/hour and up.

    The DHR provide minuum wage and we pay the other to give 10 dollars. We live in a small town in AL. CNA's only get $10/hr and they can drive as well.

    Thumbs up driving assitance by feds

    The transportation provisions of title II cover public transportation services, such as city buses and public rail transit (e.g. subways, commuter rails, Amtrak). Public transportation authorities may not discriminate against people with disabilities in the provision of their services. They must comply with requirements for accessibility in newly purchased vehicles, make good faith efforts to purchase or lease accessible used buses, remanufacture buses in an accessible manner, and, unless it would result in an undue burden, provide paratransit where they operate fixed-route bus or rail systems. Paratransit is a service where individuals who are unable to use the regular transit system independently (because of a physical or mental impairment) are picked up and dropped off at their destinations. Questions and complaints about public transportation should be directed to:
