Alpha One-Adaptive Driving Education Fundraiser

Alpha One-Adaptive Driving Education Fundraiser

Alpha One is launching our first fundraising initiative to enhance our Adaptive Driving Education program and we are looking for your help.

This program is one of our oldest, and has been offering driver evaluation, assistive driving technology consultation and driver education and training since the early ‘80s. The ADE Program has helped hundreds of Maine consumers to become licensed drivers and enjoy the freedom of mobility

Our goal is to lower the overall cost of delivering this valuable service to Maine people who want to get back on the road again, by soliciting support from individuals and businesses who share our desire to help others remain independent.

Donations from foundations and individuals will provide for the purchase and adaptation of a new van and the operation of the program over the next five years.

17th ANNUAL EVENT ASKS 'WHAT'S YOUR MPG'

Commuters who carpool, vanpool, ride transit, bike, walk or telecommute May 16 through 20 can double their miles per gallon – or better. With high gas prices hitting commuters hard in the pocketbook this spring, Commute Another Way Week is urging employers and commuters to work together to raise their MPG – and save a bundle on their daily commute.

“This is the 17th year we’ve held this event, and one thing that never stops drawing people in is the message about how much you can save when you drive alone to work less frequently,” says event organizer Carey Kish of the GO MAINE program.

The purpose of Commute Another Way Week is to let help Maine commuters learn more about carpooling, vanpooling, biking, walking or riding transit, teleworking and other low-cost alternatives to the single-occupant vehicle.
