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.
Rev. Dr. Christopher Montgomery joined Project CAR as its executive 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.
