PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Getting older can make it tough to get around and visit family, attend church service or similar things.

However, a local church has a new option for seniors who need a ride.

[VIDEO: New ride-hailing service for seniors]

All Saints Lutheran Church in Deer Valley has partnered up with a new ride share company called Envoy America.

They pick up church members who have trouble getting around or can't drive anymore. Drivers can help seniors get to church or run errands like picking up groceries.

Emma Glaze doesn't drive anymore but loves going to church. She said the service has been very convenient and she trusts the driver to help her.

"Those of us (sic) can't drive, can't see, couldn't get here any other way, we really love it," she said.

Why only seniors that go to churches? Is that the pitch? I'm disabled i know other disabled people that have a hard time getting around due to health issues. What about us? Or only restricted to those 55?60+yo who are religious practicing christians? I'd go to church but i can't get up that early. LOL. 🤣😕🤔😘💙✌🐻👼✝Maybe i'll call a church/priest for an in home visit ..that could be fascinating

Shady, go to www.valleymetro.org, up in the corner of the page, type in ADA Paratransit, the application will come up. Fill the application out, they will call you for an appointment, for which they will drive you to, and you will be able to get Paratrasit to anywhere for $4.00 total, or Ridechoice for $3.00 each way. That is for disabled.
