Securing reliable and affordable transportation to and from court, court-mandated programs, and treatment services can pose a large obstacle for many Office of the Public Defender clients.
APDM is excited to partner with Uber to address this need. Piloting the program on a small scale, APDM has begun to secure rides for OPD clients with transportation obstacles for court mandated appearances and access to treatment. APDM hopes to eventually scale the partnership and initiative to have greater impact across Maryland.
Kudos to Uber Business for understanding the transportation obstacles impacting the communities that OPD serves and rising to the occasion to help meet the need!
