The Communities for a Lifetime Initiative hosts rideshare education trainings for adults aged 55+. Rideshare services, like Lyft or Uber, can be a good option for people who can't or don't want to drive. Many older adults have a smartphone but may not have tried rideshare before. The training is offered in partnership with the
GoDakota Transportation Initiative.
Participants have the opportunity to ask a wide range of questions about:
- Background checks for drivers
- How to schedule rides
- Cost of rides
- How to rate drivers
- How to tip drivers
