Event Description

Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital’s annual Junior Wheelchair Sports Camp is specifically designed for youth between the ages of 6 and 19 years who use a wheelchair to participate in sports.  Campers have opportunities to learn and practice skills in basketball, rugby, tennis, swimming, racquetball, handcycling and more.  They also experience adventure climbing at the climbing wall, as well as participate in a ropes course, kayaking and SCUBA diving in a pool. A large number of staff and volunteers, many of whom are wheelchair users themselves, facilitate an enriching, dynamic and FUN experience for all!

STATEWIDE: Lyft Access Information

HELP US EXPAND TRANSPORTATION ACCESS!

Lyft’s vision is to expand access to safe, friendly, reliable transportation using the resources we already have in our communities.

 

You can make Lyft even more accessible by giving rides to passengers with disabilities. Earn great money while helping passengers with disabilities in your community.

WHAT IS LYFT?

Lyft matches drivers with passengers who request rides through our smartphone app.

BE YOUR OWN BOSS

Choose your own hours, drive your own car.

COMMUNITY

Meet great people while providing a valuable service to your community.

DRIVER INSURANCE

Lyft provides primary insurance from leading insurance carriers, at no cost to the driver. Our drivers get: primary liability insurance up to $1M per occurrence, contingent collision insurance for drivers who carry collision coverage on their personal auto policy, and coverage for bodily injury caused by uninsured/underinsured motorists.

PASSENGER RATINGS

Drivers rate passengers after each ride, so you’ve always got a say. We also require passengers to provide valid credit card information for identity verification purposes.

 

FAQ

·         WHAT ARE LYFT’S ACCESSIBLE VEHICLE REQUIREMENTS?



Your vehicle must be equipped with a lift or ramp to accommodate passengers traveling in electric or non-electric wheelchairs, must display a placard certifying compliance with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (such as the NMEDA Quality Assurance Program seal), and must have 4 securement straps and a lap and shoulder belt in proper working condition to secure a passenger traveling in a wheelchair.

The vehicle must also have additional passenger seats available to accommodate passengers not traveling in wheelchairs.

  • ·          

O    WHAT ARE THE FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARDS?



To ensure public safety, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issues regulations that all motor vehicle and mobility manufacturers must follow called the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS). To confirm that your accessible vehicle meets these requirements, check your vehicle for an adhesive placard or seal from your auto manufacturer certifying its compliance. This is typically found on the edge of the door.

o     

§  I ALREADY HAVE A JOB, SO CAN I JUST DRIVE A FEW HOURS IN MY OFF-TIME?



Absolutely. You choose when you drive, as long as it’s within Lyft’s operating hours. Some drivers make more than $800 just driving Friday nights and weekends.

§   

§  HOW DO I GET PAID?



Drivers get 80% of payment from passengers. Money is deposited into your account each week.

§  IS LYFT SAFE?

§  Our community’s safety is our top priority. We run extensive background checks on drivers, provide up to $1M excess liability insurance per occurrence, and designed numerous safety features into our app. Passengers must provide a valid credit card and phone number for identity verification purposes. Drivers and passengers also rate each other at the end of a ride, so that we’re always upholding our high community standards.

§   

§  HOW DOES THE APPLICATION PROCESS WORK?



We try to contact everyone within one business day after applying. The driver orientation process takes a few days. You’ll be out on the road and driving in no time!

§  WHAT ARE LYFT’S REQUIREMENTS?

 

You must be at least 21 years old and be the owner of a car (2000 or newer) that’s in good working condition. Additionally, you’ll need an iPhone or Android phone to use our mobile app. As part of our approval process, drivers must pass a phone screen, an in-person meeting, and background and DMV record check.
