About Us

Our History

Chariot has been delivering exemplary senior transportation services to the community in one guise or another since 1988.  Our pre-Chariot name, Drive a Senior Central Texas (DASCTX) was created in 2019 to clarify, and call attention to, the ever-expanding service area we now encompass: South Austin, Southwest Austin, Lakeway, northern Hays County and Elgin. The combination of three different Drive a Senior groups and our expansion into underserved neighborhoods and rural areas has resulted in a more impactful and efficient program.  We recognize and appreciate the collaboration over the years with other greater Austin nonprofits with whom we share a similar mission.  We are committed to enabling our rapidly growing  aging population to age in place and look forward to continued collaboration with organizations who share our vision of every senior in central Texas having access to transportation, enabling them to age in place and enrich their quality of life. 

Our Mission

Chariot enriches lives and communities by providing transportation and socialization to non-driving seniors, helping them to age in place.
