Helping You Find Rides to Prisons

At the end of 2014, there were 1,561,500 prisoners being held in state and federal correctional facilities in the US. You can only imagine how many “outsiders” are effected as prison loved ones in 2017.

Many of these prison loved ones are looking for prison visitor transportation services, prison ride companies and prison carpool partners to help them get rides to prisons.

Others would like to network with prison carpool partners to help make their prison visits more affordable, and possibly more enjoyable. We help you find rides to prisons and carpool partners to ride with you.

Words from Founder Renee Patterson

Prison Rideshare Network was founded by Renee Patterson, with the marketing team of Content Marketing Geek behind it. As a prison loved one herself, Ms. Patterson writes biographies about famous prisoners and fictional short stores related to the lives and struggles of prison loved ones.

Renee considers herself to be an advocate for prison loved ones… not the prisoners themselves.

Reasons for Starting Prison Rideshare Network

When asked why she decided the world needed a network for loved ones looking for rides to prisons to visit incarcerated loved ones, Renee Patterson writes:

“When PRN was launched more than five years ago, the goal was simply to create a network for myself to visit my own loved ones in two CDCR prisons: CIW and ASP. Once I realized that very few such resources existed, I started my own network. And, that’s when the Prison Rideshare Network was born.

In the beginning, I’d rent a car or a multi-passenger van to transport those who purchased tickets to CIW or ASP. After a while, that became too overwhelming for me. So, I just started a Prison Rideshare Network Facebook Page and allowed people to hook up with each other there.

But, the dream of creating a website where prison visitors can network more efficiently to find carpool partners, ride share programs, transportation services and other rides to prisons never left my thoughts.”

Our Mission

The mission of Prison Rideshare Network is to help prison loved ones find rides to prisons. We want to help them continue to build those very important bonds with the incarcerated loved ones in their lives.

One of the best ways to create, build and nurture long-lasting relationships with prisoners is with prison visits. We help you find rides to prisons to support your incarcerated prisoner through prison carpool partners and prison visitor transportation services.
