I was first blessed  with the Sober Shuttle in my life at 5 months and 3 weeks clean.  I was graduating my sober house in Cape Cod and was to move to Chelsea where my husband had already set up home.  The only issue was I had no transportation and no where to turn.  My husband told a newly acquainted friend named Jim of my dilemma.  The next thing I new there was a green van in the driveway with white letters that read "SOBER SHUTTLE".  Before I knew it I was packed and on my way to Chelsea.  After that my involvement with the Sober Shuttle was a gift of recovery!  We carried the message of recovery to people in treatment centers and tried to give hope and inspire those struggling and suffering with substance issues.  I have now learned to live life with honor and dignity and with great gratitude for the Sober Shuttle!

2019 Programs and Initiatives

Recovery Transport Program (RTP)

The RTP was created for the purpose to ensure that cost-free transportation is available to all consumers.  No individual should lose their spot in treatment or their opportunity for sustained recovery due to the lack of transportation.

Recovery Transport Awareness Initiative (RTAI)

The RTAI was created for the purpose of individual, family, business and community awareness of the Sober Shuttle services.  Telephone correspondence and pamphlets (either through the postal services or business walk-ins) will offer the education of all services.

"Messengers of Hope"

Absolutely insist on enjoying "Life"


The Sober Shuttle, Inc. is a group of individuals who have sustained a productive degree of recovery and a new and happy lifestyle.  We welcome all those wishing to recover from their own addictions to join us and become a part of the Sober Shuttle family.

When individuals recover so do families!


Re-establish trust and family engagement.  It has been the experience of many that family members who place distance between themselves and the actively addicted do so to protect their own physical and mental health.  When an individual enters recovery "Miracles" happen and families begin to reunite.

Become an advocate in the lives of others!


The Sober Shuttle strongly believes in their fellowship and in the power of 12-Step work.  By becoming active  in ones own recovery and in the recovery of others a common bond will form and new friendships will develop and existing relationships will flourish.                                                                       


New Members are always welcome with no pressure or unwanted commitments. Please send us your email address or call the Jim at (617) 270-0479 for more information.
