I-Ride Transit

I-Ride Transit


When you need a ride, I-Ride Transit can get you there. 

I-Ride Transit is the transportation brand of Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia, providing accessible transportation options in metro Hampton Roads and Western Tidewater.

I-Ride Transit offers fixed routes, medical transportation, and on-demand response transit. Our experienced drivers will be happy to drive you to medical and therapy appointments, local wellness and senior centers, adult day care centers, shopping, and more.
