Have you ever wondered about those vehicles you see running around Sioux Falls with the words "Project Car" written on the side?
Well, it’s a little-known taxi service in town where the rides are free to a very special clientele.
One of the hardest things for older Americans to deal with is not being able to drive anymore. Even though they have lots yet to contribute, they're stuck.
25 years ago, pastor Barney Friesth of 1st Lutheran Church in Sioux Falls wanted to help those folks at least get to church. Working with a couple other congregations in town, Project CAR was born.
Today Project CAR has grown to four cars, two vans and a bus with 60 drivers and well over 150 regular riders.
You can call (605)332-2777 for more information about getting a ride or being a volunteer driver.
