Christine Currier, director of St. Lawrence County’s Volunteer Transportation Center, says the program is in dire need of more drivers. Before the pandemic, the program had about 100 volunteers in St. Lawrence County. That number fell by half during the pandemic and still has not bounced back.

For those in St. Lawrence County who don’t have cars, it can be almost impossible to make essential trips. Volunteer Transportation gives people rides to places like doctor’s offices and grocery stores. Many ride requests come directly from individuals who call the program’s phone number for assistance.
