About envida

We believe our entire community deserves to live fully. As a nonprofit, we provide transportation and homecare services to individuals with disabilities, older adults and those experiencing financial challenges.


Supporting independent living

You may be missing those Amblicab buses around town. That’s because in January of 2018, we launched a new brand along with a new name – envida. We have proudly served the Colorado Springs community for nearly 50 years, providing transportation in our community. Our new name and brand reflect our continued commitment to our clients and their ever-changing needs. Always adapting, we now offer home care services to more than 100 clients and caregivers.
