  • Increase their motivation to become successful during the reentry process
  • Increase their levels of love and self-esteem
  • Increase parental bonding with their children
  • Reduce crime activities in the community

Family United Transportation believes in putting families first.

Project Ride

Project Ride gives children visiting an incarcerated parent the opportunity to ride with Family United Transportation Service for FREE! Why? Children are the "Innocent" victims left behind. Studies have shown children with incarcerated parents have psychological, social, and emotional challenges in their lifetime. Bonding with the incarcerated parent decreases challenges and allows for stronger family ties, reunification during reentry process, and builds higher  levels of self esteem for children and their parents.

*Some rules and restrictions may apply! Ask for details when making reservations.


Your GIFT of $5.00 gives us the opportunity to let children ride FREE!
