COOKEVILLE – A ribbon cutting ceremony, officially kicking off the new MyRide volunteer transit program, was held Monday, Jan. 28 at the Cookeville Senior Center.

MyRide Upper Cumberland is a volunteer-based transportation program, focusing on providing “door-through-door” service to seniors and simultaneously increasing independence for those clients.

In order to receive MyRide services, clients pay a $25 annual membership fee. This annual fee includes the cost of the first three trips. Additional trips thereafter cost $2 each and $1 per each additional stop requested. All trips are pre-paid, and volunteers collect no money.
