IslandRides provides free or low-cost service to islanders without a car or who do not drive. This includes seniors, people with disabilities and others in need. The donation or free fares are subsidized by United Way of San Juan County, SJI Community Foundation and generous businesses, grants and individual donors.
IslandRides is pleased to announce its expanded service to Lopez Island. With generous support from Lopez Lions Club, Lopez Island Senior Services and the Lopez Island Family Resource Center, IslandRides was gifted an electric Nissan Leaf . The eco-friendly car is also budget friendly, as there are no fuel costs and less maintenance.
The response to the survey is clear and RoundTowner rservice on San Juan Island is now called IslandRides. The more inclusive name corresponds to expanded service now available throughout San Juan Island and also available on Lopez Island. Future service is being planned for Orcas Island. The system has delivered over 26,000 on-island rides to island residents.
