About On the Go
On the Go is a nationally recognized and award-winning program of Charitable Adult Rides & Services (CARS), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that supports thousands of organizations across the U.S. and Canada.
CARS was initially established in 2003 as a subsidiary of Jewish Family Service of San Diego (JFS) to help fund transportation solutions for older adults in the San Diego community. After recognizing a national need for affordable and safe transportation for our most vulnerable populations, CARS expanded On the Go to offer its services to agencies nationwide.
“My love and appreciation for what On the Go does for me is endless. My whole life has changed. To get to my doctors’ appointments on time, to get out and see people, to see the trees and the city. Just riding in the car — it is like a breath of fresh air.” – On the Go Rider
