I’m a Senior who doesn’t have a PC. Can I ride?

The answer is “Yes” …it just takes a bit of setting up in either of the two (2) ways described below:

Sponsor: The easiest way is if you know someone who is “online” and who is willing to book your Rides for you, asking them to be your Sponsor They will be a trustworthy friend or family member who has their own email address.

When you need a Ride, you call them and they will “relay” your Ride Requests online to HillsCarPal volunteer drivers. They will then call you back to advise the names and mobile phone numbers of the drivers who will drive you. They will also be responsible for making payment for your Rides and you may need to provide them with your credit card details. There is no extra cost to use HillsCarPal if you arrange your own Sponsor.

Online Facilitator: If you don’t know anyone to ask to be your Sponsor, we’ll try to find you one. If we are successful in finding a volunteer to help book your Rides, we will run a Police Check on him/her and put them in touch with you. Seniors who use our service in this way are called Phone Clients.

When you need a Ride, you call them and they will “relay” your Ride Requests online to HillsCarPal volunteer drivers. He/she will then call you back to advise the names and mobile phone numbers of the drivers who will drive you. You will be responsible to call us to arrange Credit Card payment for Rides taken each month. And there is a Phone Support Contribution of $30/annum if you want to use our Seniors transportation service in this manner.
