CVTC Volunteer Driver Program Seeking New Drivers Through CVTC New Driver Challenge

Since its establishment in 2008, The Community Volunteer Transportation Company (CVTC) has been on a mission to provide rides to non-emergency medical or social service appointments, including the grocery store, bank, post office and pharmacy for those in the community needing assistance with transportation. Their mission to optimize the health, well-being and independence for community members is ongoing and expanding daily. CVTC is excited to strengthen services and is seeking community support in the form of drivers for their organization through the introduction of the CVTC New Driver Challenge.
While CVTC has made remarkable progress, they are facing a challenge. To meet their goals and serve the community even better, they need more volunteer drivers. Their New Driver Challenge aims to recruit ten new drivers by the end of this year. Currently, CVTC has 65 drivers, with an average of 55 actively serving the community each month. In 2023, they have provided an average of 3,600 rides, approximately 11 rides per day. However, some trips remain unfulfilled due to various reasons, including a lack of available drivers. In 2022, 14% of rides went uncompleted, and the year-end projection for 2023 is approximately 400 rides not completed which equals 11.5%, highlighting the critical need for additional drivers.
In 2023, CVTC is projected to drive over 130,000 miles, an impressive feat that showcases the significant impact of their services on the community.
If you’re wondering why you should become a CVTC volunteer driver, the answer lies in the benefits and the profound sense of community you’ll experience. As a volunteer driver, you’ll receive mileage reimbursement, which helps cover your expenses. More importantly, you can select trips that match your availability, allowing you to contribute at your own pace while building connections with members of the community.
CVTC receives annual support from both Monadnock Community Hospital and Cheshire Medical Center, emphasizing the community’s collective commitment to this valuable service. CVTC has also been recognized for its outstanding efforts, earning the prestigious Nonprofit of the Year award from the Peterborough Chamber of Commerce in 2021.
Learn more at, or get started as a driver today by calling CVTC at (603) 821-0569, and become a driving force of positive change in our community.
Let’s work together to ensure that everyone in the Monadnock Region has access to the transportation they need for a better and more independent life.
