How do I become a rider on RAFT?
Please call the Berthoud Area Community Center at (970) 532-2730 on weekday mornings from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon. Community Center staff may refer you to a RAFT scheduler who will complete the registration form with you or schedule your ride.
What are the fees for riders?
There are no fees for rides. Volunteer drivers use their own vehicles for ambulatory clients; however, RAFT has acquired a Para Van which is used when the client requires a wheel chair for mobility. Although there are no set fees, donations are encouraged.

RAFT is funded by client contributions; grants from the Larimer County Office on Aging, North Front Range Metropolitan Planning Organization/Larimer County Mobility Council, the Berthoud Community Fund; agreements with human service agencies, the Town of Berthoud and others; individual contributors; merchants who sponsor RAFT; and assistance from the Berthoud Fire Protection District.
