Transportation services for seniors
Surrey offers transportation for our members:
Shared Ride Service
Surrey provides a “shared ride” service which is similar to carpooling with other seniors in your area. This door-to-door service is available weekdays 8 am to 5 pm. There is a fare for this service which varies based on your age (over or under age 65), your county, and the distance traveled. Riders must register with Community Transit (Delaware County) or Rover (Chester County). Please call 2 days in advance for reservations.
Who this is best for: Surrey members who are able to step into and out of a van.
Volunteer Driver Escort Service
For those members who cannot use the shared ride program, Surrey volunteers provide rides using their own vehicles. Volunteer Driver Escort Services are available weekdays 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. This is a free service and only provided to Surrey members. The volunteers do not take tips, but members are encouraged to make donations in support of the program. Please call 5 days in advance to schedule a volunteer ride.
Who this is best for: Surrey members who are traveling to destinations not on the van route or to medical appointments and local errands.
To schedule transportation, please call 610-993-9493.

You will be escorted by a Surrey professional staff member. This service may include prescription pick up, light meal preparation, and same day post procedure care.
