Freedom Road Transportation (FRT) is a non-profit organization that seeks to empower people living with
low income with a convenient and cost-effective transportation option. Most riders use our program so they
can get to and from doctors appointments, employment, worship services and grocery stores.
FRT allows people to improve their quality of life by not being isolated from their community. Some of the riders
include single mothers, senior citizens, veterans, people with disabilities and others living with low incomes.
Drivers donate their time and receive mileage reimbursement using the Federal guidelines.
FRT continues to address the needs of people who would otherwise be isolated in their homes or solely dependent
on family and friends for transportation. Presently we have no ‘wait list’ for enrollment in our program.
FRT is in the process of transferring people off the list as funds arrive. We are encouraging people to place their
names on the wait list so we can use this important ‘demonstrated need’ information while we seek additional
funds and grant opportunities.

VA patients must contact their primary VA doctor, who forwards the request.  The Travel Dept.
makes the travel arrangements. VA has contractual companies who provide car/van/ambulance
transportation.  The companies go to the door and assist the patient to the vehicle.  Transportation
is free to eligible VA patients.  If the patient is at risk (blind, unsteady gait), the patient is taken
to the Travel Dept. and escorted to their appointment.  The VA Travel Dept. always calls 1-2 days
before pick-up, so "if no call, no pick-up".

We’re excited to announce that we and our National office have lifted the requirements of our Matrix
Ways to Work program to include employee’s without children! Ways to Work provides low-interest
loans to help people buy a car to strengthen their self-sufficiency and improve their quality of life.
Having a car is not a luxury, it’s often a necessity. In order to get and keep a job, you’ve got to be able
to go to where job opportunities are located, show up on time and also juggle family responsibilities.
Public transportation can’t always meet those needs. In addition, paying off the car loan helps people
improve their credit record, which is a critical step in attaining financial stability.
Our new requirements! Spread the word!
Continuously employed for six (6) months / Possess a valid Michigan Driver’s License
Bankruptcies (if any) must be discharged / Limited or no credit alternatives
Geographical resident of Wayne, Macomb, and Oakland counties
Household income no greater than 80% of area’s median income
Demonstrated ability and desire to pay
If you are ready to take the next step and participate in our program; we need you to attend Financial Orientation.
