    "Thanks for your program, Great work, without this program I would not be able to see the Doctor. God Bless."

    "My driving this past year has been more limited. I only drive to local stores, post office and church. I used to use Park and Ride back to get to the Medical Center. Then last year my walking was more limited, so I was grateful to the Harris County Transportation Program for providing coupons for taxicabs. It was big help to me. I can’t thank them enough!! Everyone I came into contact with was just as nice as they could be. It is a great organization that shows concern and respect for the senior. Thank God for people like that!"

    "It has made me more independent."

    "In the past, I would worry about having a way to my doctor’s appointment. With the tickets it’s so much better."

    "Helps me get to the store much sooner — don’t have to wait so long."

    "For the times I am unable to take my mother out to her recurring appointments and meetings, the transportation has been so helpful. She suffers depression, and the meetings help her so much. It gives her a feeling of independence."

    "We are able to keep my appointments only because I use RIDES."

    "I am grateful for the RIDE tickets from your agency in my low period of need for transportation to medical appointments. I have moved back to New Orleans, La. Again thanks to you and your agency for your assistance during my time of need. I did not have transportation and you provided it."
