Our Story: More Than Just Transportation
We understand our work to be in solidarity with struggles for liberation worldwide, and ourselves grew out of the wave of abolitionist activism in 2020 that brought to a wider audience the necessity of building institutions that center caring for rather than caging folks who are struggling to survive in this world.
In February 2022, we began our flagship program that offers free on-demand transportation to unhoused folks in Norman. Since then we have logged around 100,000 miles giving tens of thousands of rides, primarily with our volunteers’ personal vehicles.
In January 2023, we hired our first two part-time drivers, and in April we purchased the first vehicle in our fleet—a hybrid Toyota Sienna. Most recently, in July 2023 we hired a third part-time driver.
