Door Tran is showing it can keep up with the demand for transportation in the area, but its volunteer base is growing thin. Approximately 10 drivers serve people with mobility issues throughout the entire county and more people are using Door Tran’s services as the county has reopened. The struggle is most of their volunteers are above the age of 70 and some dropped out due to safety concerns. Interim executive director Nikki Voight says they are doing what they can to make current and future volunteers feel safe.
Door-Tran has even helped fill the void for a service on Washington Island to get residents to and from the mainland for appointments after it shut down due to the pandemic. Click here to learn how you can volunteer and support Door-Tran.
