Drivers Wanted

AVL Ride seeks sociable, reliable, “Ashevillians” to make cash money and have fun!

Help your neighbors get what they need from the store or get them where they’re going while having a good time getting there! Drive whenever you want with flexible hours. We provide start up safety materials such as face mask, gloves, etc. We also offer some paid volunteer opportunities through Food Connection (we facilitate restaurant food donations to local shelters in need).
