FISH is reopening!

We are preparing to resume services on Monday, October 4, barring unforeseen circumstances. An updated calendar is viewable on this site, and has been mailed to our current clients and volunteers. If a client is unable to secure a ride from FISH, the client should call Transportation Services at the Lexington Community Center at 781-861-1210 to learn of alternatives.

The following COVID-19 requirements will be in effect starting October 4:

  • Drivers and clients must be fully vaccinated. Proof of vaccination may be requested by the driver or the client.
  • Masks are mandatory for drivers and clients.
  • Clients and anyone accompanying a client will sit in the backseat of driver’s cars, and windows may be left open as well.

We hope our reopening goes smoothly. If you have any questions or issues, do not hesitate to contact a board member. Welcome back!

We're FISH

Since 1974, FISH has been providing Lexington residents free rides to medical appointments in Lexington and vicinity, including Boston.
FISH relies exclusively on volunteers to provide rides and on donations from generous Lexington residents and organizations to cover operating expenses.

What We Do for Lexington residents

FISH volunteers drive Lexington residents to medical appointments in Lexington and vicinity, including Boston, free of charge (except for parking fees and tolls). Rides are limited to one round-trip ride per week.

FISH volunteers Drive Clients to appointments

How much time? The typical commitment is one day a month, your choice of day.  Drivers can indicate they are willing to drive to Boston, or can choose to drive only to Lexington and vicinity. Drivers may get one or more assignment or may not be needed at all, depending on the number of requests on that day.

FISH Phoners are volunteers who Schedule the rides

How much time? Phoners usually sign up to make calls to drivers one day a month, for a typical commitment of about two to three hours a month.

When you need a ride to a medical appointment, we can help!

All rides are free-of-charge, except for parking fees and tolls.
