Specialized transit

Our drivers do more than drive. Whether you are an older adult, have a disability, or face financial challenges, you can depend on envida drivers to be with you every step of the way. They can assist you inside your home and help you to your appointment or activity. Learn more about our “reasonable accommodations” here.

Our drivers, your friends

I work at envida because I get to make a positive impact. I change lives, and I feel rewarded. I believe in what I do. Some of my riders treat me like family, and I treat them the way I treat my own family.
