What Is Prison Rideshare Network
Other than reporting prison news, PRN also brings people together to help them connect with rides to prisons in the U.S. This is done via:
- Business Directory – Find prison visitor transportation companies in your state that provide prison rides to the facilities you wish to visit
- Prison Carpool Services – Coming Soon – Use our web and mobile PrisonLift app to find others near you going to your prison so you can carpool with them
Are you a prison visitor ride provider? Does your company provide transportation to prisons in the US?
Our news mission is to keep our audience up-to-date with daily prison news happening all across the country.
Our social mission is to connect those looking for rides to prisons with businesses and carpool partners to get them there.
Our ultimate mission is to build our non-profit brand into a network that actually provides prison visitor transportation services. We hope to someday ensure that all Forgotten Victims of Crime AKA Children with Incarcerated Parents have access to prison rides to visit their locked up mothers and fathers monthly… FREE OF CHARGE.
Founder & CEO Kiesha Joseph
Prison Rideshare Network was founded by Kiesha Joseph in January 2010 to fulfill her own personal need to find carpool partners to ride with her to prisons. At the time, she had four loved ones in California’s CDCR facilities. She was looking for people to take the long rides with her, while splitting the traveling costs.
Kiesha will tell you in a heartbeat that she’s an advocate for prison loved ones… not the prisoners themselves.
Ms. Joseph was asked why she believed the world was in need for a network created specifically for helping prison loved ones find transportation to prisons. Her response:
“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.”
