Project CAR has 40 years of experience in non-profit transportation in Sioux Falls.
We began as a collaborative transit effort among a small group of agencies and churches focused on serving the needs of senior citizens. Since that time we have grown to a reliable system of transit for seniors, persons with developmental disorders or medical conditions – any adult whose ability to transport themselves is limited because of health or finances. We offer rides at no cost to the passenger.
Our network includes 15 member organizations, a group of churches, non-profits, and educational institutions. We own a fleet of five vehicles driven by over two dozen volunteers.
How to Schedule a Ride
Rides for medical appointments, including physical therapy, psychiatric support, vision, and dental, are subsidized through our partnership with Charis Ministry Partners and can be scheduled by calling our office directly at 605-332-2777.
Rides for learning skills and employment for those with developmental disabilities occur through our partnership with LifeScape and Dakotabilities. Please reach out to a case manager or social worker at LifeScape or Dakotabilities to learn more about scheduling a ride with Project CAR.
Rides for religious activities occur through one of our member churches. If you are a member of one of the following churches, call our office directly at 605-332-2777 to schedule a ride.

Dr. Christopher Montgomery joined Project CAR as its managing director in August 2020. He was a parish pastor for 12 years in the Church of the Brethren and the Mennonite Church USA, an adjunct seminary professor in worship, and also did a brief stint working in management for a school bus company. He is an ordained minister who holds degrees in music, organizational leadership in a changing culture, as well as a doctorate in applied theology. He sees the work that Project CAR does as ministry and service: helping those who are the least among us. He lives in Dell Rapids with his wife, Amanda, and their three children.
