The Volunteer Transportation Center, Inc. (VTC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Thanks to the work of our certified Volunteer Drivers, Staff, Board of Directors and the generosity of our donors, the VTC provides essential rides to health, social, and other destinations for residents of Northern New York who have no other transportation alternatives.  We envision a community where transportation is available to everyone.

Provide transportation to health, wellness and critical needs destinations utilizing volunteers and mobility management for anyone who has barriers to transportation.
