Service Details

Description

Free or low cost vehicles are provided to people who qualify on the basis of income, age or disability


Additional Information

The Wheel Get There program accepts donated vehicles from the public and sells them to low income people at a discount.


The cost of the car varies with age, mileage, and potential to be a long-term solution. Every car destined for a low-income person is test-driven and an under-hood check performed, but most cars will need some work to be usable for daily transportation.


A limited number of vehicles are leased to people who are in need through the Wheel Get There Program.


Almost any car donation is accepted.
