The purpose of WestFair Rides (WFR) is to help meet the transportation needs of older adults and vision-impaired adults of Westchester County, NY and western Fairfield County, CT by creating a network of sustainable, community-based, volunteer transportation services. Our goal is to promote lifelong safety, independence and mobility through mutually supportive, collaborative relationships with aging in place organizations, town recreation, public transportation, private livery, ParaTansit and other transportation providers and services in our region.
