Shared-Ride Program

The Shared-Ride Program (SRP) is a door-to-door ridesharing service offered on a space-available basis with limited driver assistance. This service is for any Philadelphia resident who is 65 or older. Reservations must be made in advance. The service is for travel within the City of Philadelphia, and to anywhere within three miles of the city’s border (Bucks, Montgomery and Delaware counties). For Shared-Ride Programs outside of the City of Philadelphia, contact your county’s coordinator.

Brochures for the Shared-Ride Program are available for download in English and Spanish.

The Pennsylvania Lottery Fund contributes to the cost of operating this program.

Share-Ride Registration

To register for this program, you must complete the application form and provide one of the acceptable forms of proof of age. Once you have a completed application and proof of age documentation you can schedule an appointment to come to 1234 Market to receive your CCT Key card.

There are two ways to receive the application for the Shared-Ride program. You can request an application from CCT Connect Customer Service at 215-580-7145, prompt 6, or you can print out the form from the link provided.
