What can FARES4FREE do to help?
FARES4FREE is approaching the issue in 2 ways. We are working together with taxi companies and drivers, asking for 4 donated fares a month per driver. The ask is reasonable and the impact on the veteran community is considerable.
We have paired this project with a campaign to provide wheelchair capable vehicles staffed by trained ex service personel. We feel that these will be the people best suited to befriend or care for others in need who share similar backgrounds and experiences.
Financial security will not be a barrier to using our service. The only criteria a person has to meet to use us, is that they or a family member have served in the Armed Forces.
Who are we? We are a group of friends from Scotland, England, The Netherlands and the USA, made up of serving members of the British Armed Forces, Veterans, Fleet managers, Taxi drivers, IT consultants, Doctors and business people. We had a conversation about the recognition of service in our different countries and the idea for FARES4FREE was born.
Thank you. We would like to thank everyone who has donated funds or practical assistance so far.
