I wanted to let you know that I am a long-time ride user. It is used by many people with disabilities for more than just medical appointments. It is used for transportation to both paid and volunteer work, transportation to the polls, grocery shopping, exercise classes, family visits (I especially like it when one elderly disabled person uses the ride to visit another elderly disabled person!)The door to door service model has enabled many people with disabilities to participate very actively in their communities. Two things that I would like to know include: How many people were “kicked off” the ride system due to the recent recertifications for ride use? I believe that there are not a lot of “ride fakers” i.e., people who are not disabled but use the ride because it is “inexpensive” but I would like to know how many people were terminated from the service. Also, I have often suspected that a lot of the money spent for the ride goes to the top administrators at the companies, rather than to the drivers, but I do not know how to prove that. Most elderly and people with disabilities live on a fixed income. Some have now limited their “social” rides, and stopped going to church for example. I know that gas prices have gone up, but I think some kind of monitoring is needed.
