Review for RightRides For Women's Safety Inc, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I spent the first several years after moving to NYC living in neighborhoods where I consistently worried about getting home safely every day. Once I found out about RightRides, I immediately signed up to volunteer, even though they didn't serve my neighborhood at the time, since getting home safely was so important to me, and I wanted others to be able to get home safely. I volunteered off and on for about 2 years, hearing so many stories of people getting attacked on the street or the trains, feeling the gratitude for a free, safe ride home. I also used the service several times once they expanded to my neighborhood and it was like a miracle--the trip home took about a third of the time the train would have taken, and I could rest easy knowing I wouldn't have any problems getting home.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Warm and friendly, dedicated to helping others.
