Share A Fare Mission Statement

The mission of Share A Fare is to provide transportation for the blind and visually impaired through both a cab subsidy program and rideshare reimbursement program in order to enhance independent travel and effective participation in society.

The Omaha Council of the Blind founded Share A Fare, Inc.  As an organization of blind and visually impaired persons of all ages, we invite you to attend its monthly meetings to advocate for the rights of people who are blind and visually impaired.  Come see what they're up to!

What is Share A Fare?

Share A Fare is a cab and rideshare subsidy program for residents of the Greater Omaha and Lincoln areas who are legally blind or whose vision precludes them from driving.  Our service area includes the counties of Douglas, Sarpy, Cass, Dodge, Lancaster, and Washington in Nebraska, as well as Pottawattamie in Western Iowa.

Transportation insecurity is a serious concern for many individuals with visual impairments. In 1989, the Omaha Chapter of the American Council of the Blind began focusing their efforts on improving access to this critical resource for blind and visually impaired residents of Nebraska and the concept of Share A Fare was born.
