City CarShare Partners with Senior Nonprofit

City CarShare, a nonprofit car-sharing organization based in San Francisco, has teamed up with Next Village San Francisco to provide rides to senior citizens.

Under the partnership, Next Village volunteers will receive a free one-year City CarShare membership when they volunteer at least 12 hours a quarter, according to a report by SFGate. Next Village is a nonprofit dedicated to seniors.

Volunteers will drive senior citizens to the grocery store and the doctor, according to the report. The partnership will expand transportation options in underserved parts of the Bay Area as well as help Next Village increase its volunteer base, says the report.
