I live in Des Moines and visit ISP in Fort Madison Iowa. If anyone else lives either in Des Moines or enroute to Fort Madison, Please PM me. I would like to get aquainted with other ladies who commute to visit family or friends in Fort Madison or Mount Pleasant (only about 30 miles apart) for possible car pool.

There are posts in this thread about a taxi company based in Iowa City that does prison shuttle vans. You could take the MegaBus from QC to IC and then take the shuttle, if they're still doing it. Also, PM Kendra425 (the post right above yours) and see if she still goes to ISP and if you could meet her somewhere.

I go to Ft dodge about every weekend and even get a hotel and stay for about 3 days. I live in illnois and can either go through cedar rapids or dubuque and each is about 4 hours. I would be interested in ride sharing.

Meg, I'm uncertain how to send you a PM, but I have a "special visit" set up for this Saturday, Feb. 1st with my daughter in Mitchellville. I haven't seen her for over six mos. because I broke my hip last June and was in ICU and on life support for over a month. I still can't drive, but if it's not too late for this, I have an offer that might make things easier for someone else down the road. (PS My "ride" for next Saturday is no longer able to take me).

Default Anyone headed to Mt Pleasant for visits?

Hi everybody. My BF is in Mt Pleasant and I just got approved yesterday for visits. I am sick though (chronically not contagious) so it takes a while for me to set up rides and stuff since I don't drive. But he wanted me to be there so much. And I want to see him so much, I just hate letting him down when he is already dealing with so much there. I live in Oskaloose. Anyone from around here going or anyone going through here even on their way? Thanks guys!! By the way, I am new here, so if I did anything wrong.. I am sorry

My husband is halfway through a five year hitch and one of the biggest problems we have had is visiting. I don't know about everyone else but for me the cost and wear and tear on my poor little car are both very prohibitive.

I have had a talk with my boss, I am a cab driver in Iowa city, and she has agreed that if enough people are interested to cover the cost that as a Christian woman it is her duty to try and help families stay together. The end result is I have been given the job of setting up visitors shuttles to every prison in Iowa at least twice per month, more if the number of people interested warrants it.

So what do you all say? You can either email me here or at (removed per PTO policy - please contact member for info via pm)

We can't do door to door like with the cabs but more of a park and ride system. I arrange central places for us to all meet up along preset routes and then return you to the same place I picked you up.

Kids are kind of a sticky one though, we don't WANT to charge for them and if the van isn't booked full we won't, but if the van is booked full then we have to or else we would have to charge everyone else more to cover the seats making no money, we hope you understand.

We want to get this up and moving as soon as we can so please don't hesitate to call or email me.

We are a licensed/insured taxi company, this is no hoax, I am a prisoners wife and our main goal here is to keep you and your loved on in touch and seeing each other.

Talk to you soon,

Meg
Looking for ride from Fort Madison, IA to Newton, IA
